In the United States showed the flight "wedge" of fighters F-35 and F-16


Pilots of several American air bases held air parades in the sky of Louisiana, Arizona and Oklahoma.


The next day, the planes of the flight crews "Petrels" and "Blue Angels" of the US Air Force and Navy flew over Maryland, Virginia and Georgia, as well as the American capital.

This spectacle was shot on photos and videos. Famous American photographers Jonathan Navarro and Alexander Cook managed to make spectacular shots during an air parade over Arizona.

The atmosphere of an air holiday for The Aviationist was described by an American journalist and writer Tom Demerli.

In the United States showed the flight "wedge" of fighters F-35 and F-16


He witnessed the passage of a K-135 tanker transport aircraft, accompanied by seven F-16 fighters and seven F-35s, which moved in a wedge. These planes arrived with aviation Luke base, which is considered the world's largest complex for training pilots F-16 and F-35.

According to Jonathan Navarro, he was lucky to be at the right time in the right place to get the perfect shots. And although he was worried that the air group would not fall into the frame entirely, his fears were in vain.


A lot of spectators watched the flight from the ground, strictly observing the distance between themselves so as not to infect each other.

      Sergey, if for them it is an achievement of the human mind, then who are our combat pilots? Gods or demigods?

      The mechanism is deftly started, the system goes after the system,
      You are no one alone, but in the crowd you are a hero.
      You have your own colors, you know the formidable cry
      The wall in which you are a brick is indestructible!

        Gorget from chain mail, leather tunic,
        the bib and backrest will protect me from the iron.
        Raise the peaks with the song to the sky
        There is nothing to fear if you are in the ranks of thirds ..

        And here, my friend, "we will correct you! (C)
        In North America these geese ...
        They brazenly walk the streets and dirtied everything!
        In the center of Toronto, slowly strolling across the street in a gust of small ones. Arrogantly!
        All cars are standing.
        A month ago, they arrived from the winter, and the murder of one Canadian goose costs 25 kilobaxes (Canadian). One “acquaintance through one handshake” outside the city at night accidentally ditched 4 pieces. 100 pieces really hit!
        In the fall of these wedges ...

          Now I’ll correct you, sir! This is the wrong geese, but fattened to disgrace! Real geese will not walk the streets and crap. Although, for the sake of truth, it’s worth saying that ours, too, do not always keep the system level. But it is understandable, after thousands of kilometers of flight it is difficult to keep the line. wink

            Naturally you walk along the sidewalk like a minefield.
            I can’t judge how fat they are. (see above).
            But they fly easily and naturally.
            And there are plenty of ducks. Wild.
            And there are still swans. But a little.

            They foolishly stopped, and someone was passing by.
            In general, they came home to him in an hour.
            And they just picked feathers from the radiator.

                To be honest, I almost one hundred percent outlined what I knew from other people's words.
                But people got a hundred with a penny kilobaks.
                ChSH he completely crushed them by accident. He jumped out from behind a hill. In the dark.

                  We have a similar situation even with poultry, not to mention all sorts of "wild" ones. But they come in different sizes ... the worst thing is to "get head-on" with a moose ... very, very expensive

      And we will be allowed to watch at least from the roof? Or will you need to get a special code?
      I don’t dare to think about fireworks. Nonsense. Anyway, on May 9, I’ll note, I’ll turn on the recordings of the parades on November 7, June 41 and June 24, and also remember how in the 45th year there were 85 T-300-34 on Red Square ... Moreover, in the collector of 58 episodes of the Great Patriotic War it’s not bourgeois unknown ... ", but correct with the words of Lionid Ilyich at the beginning:" For the Soviet people it was ...

    Yes, the wrong Yankees have gone! Cadets can show such a parade! The clarity of the image in the first video, or rather, the lack of focus indicates that they were shot on a steam camera. ..

    The Americans are constantly outraged by our traditions of the May 9 celebration, our parade, and there is such news. I understand the American air parade on fighters, purely for the good of the world?
