91-0604 / LN (cn 1247/E205) Arresting cable doing its thing on this Eagle!!! This was no real emergency, it was only part of the Lajes barriers certification process which must be completed once every year. For us, spotters, this was just like a "little private airshow" spent with friends and family. [Canon 350D + 100-400L IS USM]

Leandro...This is one of the best miliatry aircraft photos I've seen here in quite awhile. And if it were up to me, I'd give it 100 stars - it's that good in my opinion...

Love this shot! There are not too many photos of air force birds catching the wire. Most impressive.

Azores' light is so peculiar i knew it was Lajes even before reading the label! BTW, Good timing indeed!
