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 The Griffins over Romania

Fortunately more opportunities came after this memorable visit to the squadron in Romania.
