Flying formation on its tanker on the way to Keflavik after the daily exercise mission during the first 2013 NATO airspace patrol deployment. The background is formed by the rather colorful volcanic mountains of the Reykjanes peninsula.

Unreal, that scenery. Looks straight out of a Mad Max movie or so. Great!

Great background and mixing of rough nature with rough military equipment. The aircraft are not shiny, they are used, they bear the marks of training, fighting and being on watch at the boundaries of a sovereign state guarding its independence. The rough nature of Iceland is also a reminder that this country is constantly changing, bearing the marks of new earth being created and independence being fought for in a constant battle.

Wow! A beautiful contrasting photo.
Love the weathering on the aircraft, gives them a mean look. They mean business!

Technically excellent, planes so close to each other and amazing landscape in the background.

The rugged, colourful background, the cloud behind the Hornets adding to that mystical atmosphere and the dirty planes give this shot a very distinct character. Amazing capture, thank you for sharing!
