Picture of the week # 4

On board with the Patrulla Aguila

In 1991 I had my first flight with the Patrulla Aguila.  

Since then I became a regular ‘back seater’ during their airshow performances in Belgium, and occasionally in Spain and Italy.  Through the years I flew in most of the positions in the formation.
The picture  was taken on top of a looping on board with  ‘Aguilla 6’ -one of the best positions to have  the rest of the team on your right side - during the airshow at Koksijde in 1992  the year that the team received their actual red, yellow and silver color scheme.

Patrulla Águila (Spanish for "Eagle Patrol", formed 4 July 1985, is the aerobatic demonstration team of the Spanish Air Force, based at San Javier airbase near La Manga, in the Murcia region of Spain. Flying  with 7 Casa C-101 Aviojets,  
Picture taken with NIKON F 4 with 28-105mm lens f 2.8 and  Fuji Velvia 100 slide film.
