2017 Florida ANG F-15’s over Romania

In the Summer of 2017 the 159th EFS of the Florida ANG deployed to Campia Turzii in Romania for a TSP deployment. On behalf of Combat Aircraft Magazine I visited the squadron and flew on a dedicated photo mission to capture their F-15’s with the local MiG-21 LanceR’s. It was the second time for me to fly with the Florida guardsmen and woman after I flew with them in 2015 out of Bulgaria. Thanks again to all of you in the Florida ANG for hosting me!

2017 F-22A Raptor encounter

During my F-16 flight over Wisconsin in May 2017, during exercise Northern Light, I was extremely lucky to encounter a pair of F-22A Raptors for a very short photo opportunity. After the two ship took some gas for their flight home to Langley AFB they joined up on my F-16D for a few unprepared photo set ups. To this date I am still stunned by the maneuverability of these aircraft. INCREDIBLE!

2016 flying over Colorado with the 140th WG

Flying with the Mile High Militia, the 140th WG of the Colorado ANG. This photo flight had it all, great flying by the pilots, great photo opportunities( including weapon releases, a first for me!) and of course the amazing landscape of Colorado. Its not going to get any better than this!

2016 F-15 encounters Bulgarian MiG-29

During their TSP deployment to Europe in 2016 the 194th EFS ‘Griffins’ of the California ANG conducted Air Policing duties in Bulgaria. On their ferry from Romania to Bulgaria I was invited to take pictures of Bulgarian MiG-29’s and the mighty F-15’s.
