For the first time since the outbreak of the COVID crisis I was able to travel to the US in November 2021. I visited the Dutch detachment at the Euro Nato Joint Jet Pilot Training (ENJJPT) at Sheppard AFB, TX. A great visit, thanks to all involved! It was great to fly in a jet again for the first time since June 2019. The images will appear in Onze Luchtmacht, Air Forces Monthly, and potential other aviation magazines around the globe.

In April 2021 Kantoor Testvliegen, or the flight test office of the Royal Netherlands Air Force, flew its final major tests involving their dedicated testbed, F-16BM, J-066. The aircraft is dubbed ‘the Orange Jumper’ and is a one of its kind aircraft. With help of the media affairs department at Leeuwarden airbase I was given the opportunity to shoot some great images of the aircraft and the people around it. Images of this shoot appeared in Onze Luchtmacht and Air Forces Monthly Magazine.
