A Fighter Squadron 2 (VF-2) F-14A Tomcat aircraft passes over the aircraft carrier USS RANGER (CV-61) and an Iowa-class battleship. VF-2 is deployed aboard the RANGER. Photo taken in September of 1987.
Taken from the Solo Türk, the F-16 solo aerobatics display team of the Turkish Air Force during a display in Girne, Kyrenia, Cyprus. While diving and turning, the pilot released flares, high-temperature heat sources used to mislead surface-to-air or air-to-air missile’s heat-seeking targeting systems, creating the pyrotechnic visual effect you can see behind the plane.
