The F18s are definitely the best performers at Axalp. Here one is seen turning sharply and pulling lots of vortices and leaving a blanket of jetwash.

I really appreciate that image, you don't see immediately what's happened; I looked over the scene and finally find the airplane with its 2 red eyes and I realize that the airplane is in a sharp turn and I feel its agility because the other side of the valley is just near by ( I know that it is not true because the shop is taken with a teleobjective but nevertheless the impression is there)
