When asked to take a group photo of all aircraft belonging to Air Forces Iceland, of course you say "YES". But when the only timeslot is at 0600 hours on a spring morning in Iceland with an uncooperative sun, the inevitable result of grey aircraft on grey concrete is GREY. There was no way to reschedule and the timeslot is one hour. I have been unhappy with the result for all those years, but still it is a historic photo, with the fighter and its tanker and the helicopter with its tanker. Both tankers rotate with different units coming up for a short while, but the two other aicraft were stationed in Keflavik.

That C model has fastpacks?! I didn't know they used them operationally. It also looks like it has pylons on it. Great shot Baldur!

Great shot, even without cooperation from the sun. I would also say "Yes" to such an opportunity, everytime again and again! Best regards, Walter
