    Those are awesome photos, Thud. But those are aggressor squadron colors. What gives?

    Those Photographs were taken over MT.McKinley around Anchorage Alaska.The Tanker and F-16's are assigned to Eielson.The tanker belongs to the Alaska Air National Guard and the F-16's are part of the 363rd Fighterwing and are used as aggressor aircraft during 3 different exercises they have up there!"Cope Thunder","Cobra Gold", and "Northern Edge". There were a couple of them at Mountain Home for there airshow this summer and many commented on there paint schemes!

    Those are awesome pics. A few of those will be my desktop background at some point! some of the backgrounds are great in contrast to the planes. Alaska must be something to see in fall.
