Matt,

Thanks.  That shot is one example where shooting in RAW helped in recovering a not so great exposure and turning it into a decent shot.

I am still full after today's lunch.  Had just a small nibble for dinner.

Shhhh.......listen......was THAT a truck?

When did you all go down to Tucson and where did you park for these shots.  I'm going down next week on business, but maybe I take a break and take a few photos.  Your last photo is spectacular.  The clarity of your Sigma lense is amazing.

On May 15, 2007, the pilot flying this F-16 released some flares during an exercise. The flares were deployed below the minimum AGL and started a fire on the test range which eventually consumed up to 18,000 acres and destroyed four houses.

Mitchell/James,

Where was that @#)* moment taken?  Looks like he's headed the wrong way (west), if viewed from the guard rail.

And EA-6B?  And Eglin F-15C? Tyndall F-22?  And KC-10?   ;D

Awesome set of shots.  I really dig the Luke Viper in the shelter (61st FS?).  How frequently do AETC squadrons get into the mix on exercises like this?  I know the Singapore and UAE squadrons have participated, but I figured they were kind of the exceptions.

Now that's funny, Joe!

Thanks man. I would say at least every other year a unit or two from AETC gets sent up there. This April the non-Thai unit with Thai aircrews and maintainers (21st FS) will be headed up there as well as our frequent visitors from Wake.

Post by: Joe Copalman on February 26, 2010, 08:22:27 AM
And I was thinking about the 21st last night when I asked about the AETC units, wondering if they were restricted from participating in offensive air exercises alongside US forces.  Can't imagine the Chinese are too happy about that.

Post by: Jason Hyatt on February 26, 2010, 08:58:37 AM
Horrible error on my part.... Yes, Taiwanese. Sorry about that man. I'm not sure how their participation is looked at by the governments over there, especially when they head to Florida for live fire exercises alongside American units about once a year.

Nice shot Joe.  I love the Arizona Fin Flash.  I built a 1/32 scale Viper for the ANG CG in 1991 with this fin flash.  I wonder if it's still there.

That's our "Wing" Travel pod.  It's the one they put on when they want to show off.  So it's going somewhere probably for some pictures or something who knows.  What's odd is that the pod is mounted on a TUR which normally hold BDU 33's

These flares are used to distract potential IR-guided missiles from the aircraft when leaving a threat area.  The chaff is meant to distract radar-guided missiles.

There are also parachute flares that burn much longer and are used to illuminate a target area at night.  A string of these dropped by a Maryland ANG A-10 over the Goldwater Range is what started the whole ridiculous "Phoenix Lights" UFO conspiracy.

AFRC unit, reactivated back in March.  Like the Redtails, they're an associate unit so I'm surprised to see an aircraft wearing their markings.  Pretty awesome that they are though.

Nice shots Brian.  I went out there today, but the rain was steady drizzle and the Vipers were straight into the barn without bouncing.  Too wet to get the camera out.  I waited a while hoping it would stop, but it didn't so I pack up and went home.  The good news is that it isn't too far away from Luke.

Nice one Chris. Ever get the radomes re-coated (or whatever's on them)?

The Radomes are coated in a rubberized material called RAM coating.  They fade just like paint but are rarely replaced unless it's ripped or torn in any way.  Usually an aircraft will go to paint and the entire jet will look shiny and new but the Radome will still look like crap.

I have a question for one of you F-16 experts. What is that sound that they make just before touching down? I would describe it as kind of a high pitched "wheep."


Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: jslugman on January 20, 2011, 06:35:29 AM
Valve that regulates the bleed air operating the burner can (turkey feathers).


Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: Dave S. on January 20, 2011, 08:10:37 AM
Adding a little more detail to James' comment.  I spoke with a ex-F-16 driver a while back regarding this same sound.  It's caused when adjustments are made to the engine's exhaust nozzle (i.e. turkey feathers).  The Pratt & Whitney powered F-16's use an air-motor driving a mechanical linkage to regulate the nozzle position.  High pressure compressor discharge air is used to drive the air-motor.

From a thread on the F-16.net forum I found this entry by 'That_Engine_Guy' which pretty much agrees with what that ex-F-16 driver told me, but with a bit more detail.

".. the .. noise you hear when Viper (or Eagle) flies overhead is exhaust air from the CENC (Convergent Exhaust Nozzle Control) on the engine. It is an air motor that moves the nozzle through mechanical (Jack-screw) actuators. (Kinda like a high speed air ratchet) Now you know it is a Pratt before you can see it!

The Nozzle positions to maintain Fan (N1) RPM and EPR (Engine Pressure Ratio) as the engine runs but also has to contend with pressures/feedback from the engine's control system. This is why it varies so much during most operation. MIL is where the nozzle is most steady at closed. At MAX the nozzle is almost 100% open but continually adjusts as flow through the engine varies. Inlet Temperature, air pressure, humidity, etc all affect the performance of the Fan/Compressor and combustion. The nozzle will constantly adjust to keep Fan RPM, Stall Margin, and pressures within normal limits."

Hey Brian - I need your help learning to interpret these tail markings and squadron affiliations. I took a photo of the exact same F-16 on Friday. I tried to use the Globemaster Tail Codes website (http://www.globemaster.de/tailcodes.html) to decipher this information with no joy. Heck, I kept getting a "no information found" reply from Tail Codes every time I tried to research a particular plane - I'm sure I must have been entering my information incorrectly; however, Tail Codes is not clear enough on data entry for a newbie like me.

As positive note, I think I have figured out how to determine the particular base (i.e. LF = Luke Field), but beyond that I'm lost. Also, what is the "block" designation you cite on most of your photos? Finally, is there a similar way to look-up commercial/private aircraft?

Sorry to be so dense; however, I would like to be more informed. Any help you (or anyone else) could offer me would be appreciated. I tried looking on the site for a FAQ sticky that addressed these types of questions, but did not find anything - sorry.

Thanks;

Jeff

The colored bands on the vertical stabilizers can be used to identify the squadron assignment of the F-16s at Luke.  PHXSpotters has a page about the F-16 squadrons at Luke: http://phxspotters.com/airports/luke-afb-luf/ (http://phxspotters.com/airports/luke-afb-luf/)

Block numbers identify specific configurations of certain aircraft types.  Joe Baugher's serial number web site (http://www.joebaugher.com/usaf_serials/usafserials.html (http://www.joebaugher.com/usaf_serials/usafserials.html)) has information for identifying block numbers for particular serial numbers.

I just took a look at this site and there is a ton of good information there.

However, I was looking up some of the aircraft I recently shot photos of at Luke and they have a whole lot of them assigned to the wrong squadrons, based on the tail flashes in my photos. I assume there have been a lot of changes and they haven't updated them recently.


Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: Joe Copalman on February 02, 2011, 04:25:07 PM
There have been two squadrons that have stood down at Luke in the past two years, and a lot of hardware has been reshuffled within the 56th Wing.  Additionally, there has been an Air Force-wide redistribution of assets over the past year, which is why Luke received some ex-Nellis birds (and the 162nd got some ex-Minnesota birds, etc).  F-16.net relies on user submissions to keep their information current, so if you catch something that's out-of-date, let them know.

I've tried to update them when I notice things out of whack. Not easy with the huge changes in the past few years. If you find one and have a photo of it contact them so they can update the site. A never ending process I'm sure!

I sent them a list of the 60 Luke F-16s that I have photos of with the squadron numbers. If they want, they can use that to update their lists. One of the ones I did look up had a previous comment noting the change of squadron that was dated in April of last year and they hadn't updated it yet.

'Cause being pretty isn't a requirement to fly. Maintenance isn't mandatory for paint except as a corrosion prevention measure so money can be spent on other things... not sure what those are in the case of the Dutch birds though.  ???

Post by: Joe Copalman on May 10, 2011, 02:26:27 PM
I'm not complaining.  I love shooting rough-looking aircraft - so much more character, and so much more believable as war machines than hi-gloss demo birds.  Just a personal preference though.  Also why I love shooting Marine Corps birds so much as well.  Can't wait to catch some UH-1Ys and AH-1Zs after they have a few years of dirt and exhaust and salt air under their skins.

Lighting was tough but I was glad to get anything.  I was in Las Vegas for other reasons but figured I'd head over to the base to see if anything was going on.  Forgot all about Red Flag, thought it had already ended!

Chris, this guy was on the ground for about 3 hours, I took a 20 min break  downstairs and when I returned it was gone. The crew said oops I guess we should have called you. Then they had the nerve to ask for pictures of when it landed. RIGHT! When pigs fly.

This was kind of an experiment with a bad pic to begin with. The tops of the wings were lost in the sunlight too!  I may apply the same principles to a better front shot (post 581) I have but I like that one "as is" too!
Ahhhh decisions!
We'll see that happens! And thanks for the comment! Still learning the more artistic processing ideas!


BTW, the Thunderbirds pics are sweeeet!!

I'm the dumbest guy in the room when it comes to ordinance, but I believe there were 6 Tophats that left at the same time with rocket pods on one side and this stuff on the other…

Hey Dave - I always enjoy these tight cockpit shots and your's is no exception. My recent visit to Luke reminded me of the "fish-eye" effect the 16's canopy has on background elements. It really adds an interesting perspective to the overall image. Very nicely done on this particular photograph.

Jeff, I like the "Clearing the fence" shot. That should have been the butt end of an F-35. They are so stealthy I didn't even see them. I was told today, next week for sure. I received an email from my Sq. commander today to grab my camera that the F-35s will be here soon so I guess it's not so sensitive.  I will put it out here on the forum when I know for sure.  It's nice that they aren't going to be so tight lipped about this.  They should be proud to have some actually being delivered to operational units.

Very nice A2A images Harvey. What a great opportunity, I'm glad to see it was finally realized. You certainly deserved it  ;D

I have been experimenting with some different things using Photoshop tonight. Decided to try a composite image after some inspiration from a very talented Canadian shooter I've become acquainted with named Mike Luedey. While not up to Mike's lofty standards; its a start. C&C very much welcomed.

F-16s were using RWY 21 for departure at KTUS. My hangar is right next to 21 so I took advantage of the opportunity to grab some pics. Lighting was no good no matter what side of the runway I was on and the 30kt wind made for a fun time holding the lens still.  8)

Love the paint scheme on #2
Wasn't quite sure how to do the color and black and white. I stumbled a bit but think it came out ok.

Hey Chris Janes, your monochrome Vipers are excellent. I especially like the different toning and treatment you used on "F-16 TaxiBW". I think your "Headon" image is wonderful for both the conversion and framing.

My attempt at salvaging a shot with lighting and contrast issues with HDR...

You salvaged some good details on the fuselage, but at the high cost of severe haloing and banding.  Looking at the EXIF, it looks like you shot on Program Mode.  You'll have much more control over your results if you move away from the let-the-camera-do-it-for-me settings and into TV, AV, or even Manual.  Glare on the canopy probably resulted in a backlit image being much darker overall, giving you very little wiggle room to correct the exposure before you start running into the problem of noise.

Post by: Jeff D. Welker on August 19, 2013, 12:11:53 PM
A beautifully crafted image Harvey. The distinction of the Viper's shape against the late evening light is wonderful. The F-16's tack sharp silhouette contrasts wonderfully compared to the mountains and atmosphere being smeared ever so gently by your deft panning skill. Lastly, having the pilot's profile prominent and the jet wash subtle is the icing on the cake for me. BTW, did I say I liked it!  ;D

Post by: Scott Youmans on August 19, 2013, 04:47:21 PM
Harvey,  Jeff pretty well summed things up!  Great that it has the centerline tank.  Really fills out the shape of the F-16 nicely.

Thanks Harvey and Keith for your kind comments. Like the ghosting of airmen working the EOR in some of my other images, at first I wasn't thrilled with the flair from the red strobe. After a day or two, I started to embrace this distinct effect and processed the images to take advantage of the uniqueness - rather than try to minimize or remove it.

Wonderful Harvey, just wonderful. The "splotchy" texture of the clouds makes a unique and very interesting background for these silhouetted Vipers. The faint glint of light bouncing off the fuselage adds just the right amount of "depth" to the image. Great work sir.

Post by: Scott Youmans on February 14, 2014, 11:28:30 PM
Joe, yes. That particular shot was not especially sharp, reasonable but not tack sharp but I liked the composition.  I'll post some on Sunday that were taken at 600mm but at closer range. Quite sharp. I want to compare it too the 500mm f/4 Canon and will post some results. So far I've been surprised at the sharpness under easy shooting conditions like Sky Harbor.  The distant Luke shots at 600mm of fast movers yielded a low keeper rate but I'm not convinced it was the lens. The ones that were sharp were quite good. I did notice better results shooting at ISO 400 rather than 200 which gave me double the shutter speed.  I was using the 1D Mark IV with a 1.3 crop factor.

So is Tamron paying you a commission, because that image right there just sold me on my next lens.  What was the focal length on that shot?


Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: Scott Youmans on February 16, 2014, 08:06:51 PM
600mm. ISO 200, 1/1000th sec., f/8.  The reviews say it's at its worst at that focal length which is not surprising but the results are pretty good considering we're looking through half a mile of air!  I've had the lens hunt while focusing a couple of times but not enough to be alarming.  I'm thinking this is most likely due to dim conditions and the small aperture at 600mm (f/6.3).  The actual focusing speed is pretty fast.

It is somewhat slow in terms of light gathering (f/5 to 6.3).   The aperture at 400mm is the same as the Canon 100-400mm.  Certainly not a replacement for a Canon 200-400mm with built in 1.4x extender but on the other hand it cost $1069.00 and is a whole lot lighter.  A body with low noise at high ISO would definitely be an advantage with this lens.  Time permitting I'm going to try some tests against the Canon 500mm f/4L IS.  I'm quite certain the Canon will be sharper (it better be!) but the question is how much.  As it stands now I'm reluctant to haul the 500mm around with me unless I'm shooting out of my car.  I sold my 100-400mm a while back thinking that Canon was going to introduce a new version.  Still waiting!

Thanks Jay. These were shot with the new Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3.  Nicely built, capable of sharp images even at 600mm. Better at 500mm. Still evaluating the lens in general and why my keeper rate was low on that particular shoot. Might have been me!


Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: Tower Guy on February 17, 2014, 09:19:38 AM
Your examples look very clear and sharp to me Scott, for the dollar difference between the Canon 200-400 with the 1.4x. Unless you hit the lottery the Tamron sells itself. WOW.


Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: Joe Copalman on February 17, 2014, 09:24:47 AM
Keeper rate from the tower has always seemed pretty low - like you said, you've got about a half-mile of air in between you and the subject.  I'd imagine that extra reach would only amplify minor panning errors as well.

As I taxied to takeoff today I couldn't help but notice someone taking pictures with a very nice camera out in the arming area.  He was wearing a red shirt with a black, possibly leather, vest.  Then when I landed I saw him in the de-arming area with a friend in a khacki vest also taking photos also with a very nice camera.  Anyhow, what I'm getting it is I was the pilot of tail #284 (Tuscon Guard jet on loan to the Spikes).  I was in arming around 0910L and de-arming around 1010L.  I'm hoping those two who were out there today are on this site/post to these forums.  I would love to get a copy or two of some of the pictures (heck, I threw out a Spike pose as I taxied into arming, hope you got the pic whoever you were).  I look forward to get in touch with you (or if anyone knows who was out there today let them know I'm looking for 'em).

Keep taking those sweet shots... we love them as much as y'all love taking them.

I don't think any of us were out there today.  Could be a local shooter out there through the "I know a guy" network, or could have been some Euro guys who set up a visit through Public Affairs.  There's a lot of them in the region this week since Red Flag is going on and they like to try and hit up a bunch of bases at a time.

Messrs. Janes - I absolutely love your F-16 photograph. I don't know what you did in capture and post processing, but keep it up. Excellent work sir.

Dave,

Brian & Steve are correct, Fitzgerald was in Thunderbird 8 - they put his name on the plane. He was sure hunkered-down in the cockpit. He wasn't looking around or anything. Maybe he wasn't feeling well  ;D

In my opinion, it is hard to beat the wonderful tonality of the late afternoon/evening winter light at Luke. As the sun sets and the warm tones are slowly transformed to blue hues, it can be gorgeous. Throw a supersonic fighter into the mix and a guy can almost get emotional - I said almost  ;)  It doesn't hurt my feelings to get lucky with the strobe as an unexpected bonus  ;D

Wow Jeffe,

That is an excellent shot.  Low light + starburst on the lights + tack sharp.  Nicely executed.  If you don't mind sharing, what were your settings on this shot?  I'm guessing in the f14-16 range (no pun intended) to achieve those starburst effects.

Thanks Dave. Lightroom EXIF attached below. Interestingly, depth of field was the subject of a some discussion last night. I'm finding that this particular lens can be shot fairly wide open and still maintain a reasonable depth of field. I don't know if that is a function of the slightly longer focal length I employed (125mm) or some other technical explanation. If I had been shooting with a shorter lens (i.e. 50mm) I don't think I'd of had a chance to get focus from nose to tail at f/4.0.


Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: Dave S. on March 06, 2015, 11:49:53 AM
Wow, that was at f4.0, impressive depth of field.  Evidence of my continued learning, but I would have thought that a shorter/wider focal length would have given you more depth of field.  Livin and learnin!


Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: Scott Youmans on March 06, 2015, 11:54:15 AM

Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: Jeff D. Welker on March 06, 2015, 12:04:21 PM
There's an app for that!

So true  ;D

Brother Youmans has an app on his iPhone that calc's depth of field. He made a quick calc for me last night and my confidence was strengthened. I even shot a few images at f/2.8 and they turned out well. If I'm remembering correctly, Scott's app noted that the "sweet" spot for my best depth of field was further away from my camera position. Thinking about it now, I'm guessing that if I had been closer to the Vipers the effective depth of field would have been reduced.


Title: Re: General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
Post by: Scott Youmans on March 06, 2015, 12:15:34 PM
Depth of field Calc is one. Another one that has been discontinued is DOFMaster which I preferred.  Basically you enter lens focal length, distance to subject, and f-stop and it gives you near and far distances where focus is acceptable. Of course that has to be based on a somewhst subjective standard just as the the depth of field scales on many lenses. They used to sell tables with the same info but this certainly more convenient! Canon used to have a cool feature where you focused on the area closest to you that you wanted in focus followed by the most distant area you wanted in focus and the the third time you half-pressed the shutter button it would set the camera at the correct distance and aperture. Pretty slick but no longer a feature.

I used my D7100 digitize some of my old slides, yes slides.

first up is an F-16A, shot from our KDC-10 refueling tanker, unfortunately ours use a camera system, so no rear window. this was shot while descending towards the Air show at RAF Fairford in 1998.

last one was a quite rare edition of the F-16A, these were wired to carry the Delft Instruments Orpheus recce pod, making it the only recce capable F-16's in its time before the modern targeting/recce pods used today. it was sololy used by the Dutch 306sq and was designated F-16A(R)

You gys are used to military jets at your airports, but here in Europe it is quite special. So I was lucky enough to catch these Dutch F-16's at Amsterdam Schiphol. They were here for an exercise, to train to use Amsterdam as an alternative.

Dutch F-16AM taking off from Leeuwarden Airbase during Frisian Flag 2016, I't was starting to get very clouded with rainshowers luring. Luckily this F-16 (yes this was the orange one) turned in front of the dark clouds and catching some rays of Sunshine.

Lighting, background, & F-16. What a great combo Bjorn, a real beauty. Will there be another Orange jet or has that come to an end?

Thank you for the kind words Harvey.

As for the orange Lion, I'm afraid that's over. For the second year in a row there is no F-16 display team due to shortages of equipment and operational requirements. As the F-35 is making its entry into service, I'm afraid there will be no new team.

Very nice shots Vance, one and all. I'm glad we did that shoot when we did. We have a new Boss and he isn't big on photographing his jets from on base. I had the Security Police explain the new policy to me when I was shooting at the base of the tower. They made me dump the photos I shot and wrote an incident report on me. I'm very careful even when shooting from my back porch.

Thanks Harvey.  I am sorry to hear that and equally sorry that you had to dump your photos (the ones from that shoot  ;D).  Do you think the new tenants that you let me know about have something to do with the no photo ruling?  I wouldn't at all be surprised if it were so.  Thanks again.  Your hospitality was very much appreciated.

Thanks Scott!  This was shot a few weeks back during that Centre of Aviation Photography assignment with the Dutch Air Force out of Tucson International.  We were in a Skyvan and had two Dutch F-16s behind us and two Dutch F-35s from Edwards in on the action as well, but they were always in the #3 and #4 slots.  I'm only allowed to release a few shots now, so as not to preempt another author's Dutch F-16 feature slated for publication in Combat Aircraft next spring.
