Air Serv International (note small titles on rear fuselage) is a nonprofit humanitarian organization flying relief workers and supplies in remote areas in the world. This 1978 Twin Otter served the United Nations in the Democratic Republic Congo (DRC) during 2007. Two years earlier, it was damaged during a bad landing at Akon, Sudan on 14 November 2005. Luckily, the robust aircraft was repaired and it continued its service over the African continent. Unfortunately, it did not survived a second crash, this time on 31 August 2007 when it fataly crashed near Punia (DRC).

Some Tomcats were specially configured as a test airframe for new avionica, weapons, databases, wiring and so on. In the Naval designation system, test airframes receive the letter N in front of the basic type. The NF-14Ds were based at NAS point Mugu (CA) and assigned to the Naval Weapons Test Squadron Point Mugu (NWTSPM). This unit was redesignated to Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD). This Tomcat shows the NAWCWD title on the leading edge, as well as the old Weapons Test Squadron on the tail.

The Mil Mi-28 Havoc attack helicopter is the Russian equivalent of the Boeing AH-64D Apache. Both robust helicopters, both two engines, both dual seat, both equipped with a canon under the nose section, both have the option for heavy arms underneath the wings and as an enemy you don't want to see both that close to your position.

I ran into this old An-2 in a yard of a private person. It was delivered to Slov-Air in April 1980 and after serving with two other operators it was wfu and stored by 2000. It was first noted at this unusual location in July 2000, still there by July 2017.

Cetraca Aviation Service was formed in 2003 and based in Beni, Congo. One of their L410s is seen here during its landing at Goma International Airport in eastern Democratic Republic Congo. This Turbolet sustained substantial damage in a runway excursion accident at Butembo Airport (DRC) when operating out of Goma. Fifteen passengers and three crew members survived the accident. The L410 was substantially damaged, and was not seen flying after 30 October 2012 when the incident happened.

New refueling old... the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet refuels an S-3B Viking overhead the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) during operations in the Persian Gulf. The Super Hornet replaced the Viking in this role from 2007 onwards. In the near future, the refueling task will be transferred to the Boeing MQ-25 Stingray, an unmanned aerial system (UAS) that will deploy with a Carrier Air Wing. This relieves the Super Hornet a bit from their busy multi-role task.

Within several Carrier Air Wings, the US Marine Corps embedded some F/A-18C Hornet squadrons. Within Carrier Air Wing ONE in 2007 this was Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 251 Thunderbolts. This baby Hornet roars off the deck of the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) during Operation Iraqi Freedom. So close with this incredible speed... a challenge to photograph... this one was made with 1/2000 sec, F/4,0, ISO 320, with only 50mm.

the 46th Tactical Fighter squadron acts as the adversary unit within the Taiwanese air force. Some of their aircraft are very colourful (see my other pictures), but some of them are extremely boring grey. But the tail markings will do it !

The cat launch... you have to see it (and feel it)! Especially from deck level near one of the four steam catapults of an American super carrier. The steam pressure builds up and pushes an average aircraft in just two seconds from 0 mph to some 150 mph (240 km/u) in 310 feet (94 m) with up to 3.5g's (recalculating this acceleration compared to an average car, that would be something as an acceleration from 0 mph to 60 mph (100km/u) in 0,8 sec!
