1335 Flying a 3 ship formation of Chipmunks from the Air Force Academy over the Sintra Mountain with most of it's landmarks in the background. Left of the frame it's the Pena National Palace, top left it's the Seteais Palace, below the second DHC-1 it's the Castle of the Moors and on top of the 1335's right wing is the Quinta da Regaleira. The best photo I could get for an air-to-air photoshoot about the 60th anniversary of the DCH-1 in the PoAF, a plane that my father also flew while he was serving. (more of 1335)

16804 Flying low over the Ria de Aveiro in a ferry flight from Montijo AB to Ovar AB during Real Thaw 11 Exercise. A few hours after landing we took off in another C-130 for an extraction mission to BraganÁa where we picked up a team from the Navy's Detachment of Special Operations (DAE) that were in the field since 1 week ago and returned to Ovar. After delivering the PoAF's Unit of Protection of the Force that assisted the mission we departed again heading back to Montijo with the DAE... what a day!! (more of 16804)
