    @Fox

    Your effort is really - commendable is a very mild word, but still looking for a better word :)

    My only observation was due to my shared background (and the 'sensitive' nature associated with it), and the propensity of nut cases seeking 'revenge' against since released/retired personnel. I felt apprehensive as a soldier who has served his/her nation, must be given due protection. One never knows.

    I am aware that these are not recent/current photographs and have noticed photos where you have posted them merely to denote the activity and hid the identities from the angle.

    However, since vetted and cleared, am sure my apprehensions are unfounded. Thanks.

    I don't have a lot to post at the moment, just a few pics of British Tornadoes during ACE17. But one of the pictures shows something interesting.

    The Norwegian F-16 isn't an uncommon sight in Bodø obviously, but that's an F-104 behind it:eek:!

    The F-104 used to be Norway's frontline fighter.
    [​IMG]

    It was supplemented by the F-5 which was in service until year 2000, the F-16 which in turn will be succeeded by the F-35.

    With its entire aft end removed, that F-104 isn't going to be going anywhere on its own clearly, but I'm still left wondering what's it being moved for:hmm:?

    I like to think of it as the "Norway and Friends" thread. It's mostly Norway, but when friendly countries comes here to drill I might share pictures of them on Norwegian soil too. Currently British DA-20 and GR4 Tornadoes are taking part in the multinational Arctic Challenge Exercise 2017 (ACE17), which takes place across Norway, Sweden and Finland. For about the next week pics of American, British, French, Belgian, Canadian and German aircraft might show up here too. And once they leave, it's back to being mostly Norway.

    I don't think we're in a hurry to integrate JSM with our F-16s. American F-16s have been testing JSM and it could be sold to nations like Poland or Romania who will be operating the F-16 for a while longer, but our F-16s will start being phased out of service in a few years and from what I've read, likely scrapped. It's a lot of work and testing, not to mention cost to integrate a major weapon system so I don't think it's likely Norwegian F-16s will see themselves flying with JSM.

    It's the Nasjonalmonumentet for ofrene fra andre verdenskrig, or national monument for victims of WWII in English. I don't quite understand the symbolism myself.

    Yeah, yeah. I know they're naked:wacko:.

    It's one of a handful of WWII memorials at Akershus Fortress.

    I understand the symbolism....I would go to war to defend her right to bathe nude. And the flag...you think the pic was deliberately using it to hide her modesty? :)
