The following images were taken at Grosseto airbase, by The Aviationist’s photographers Giovanni Maduli and Alex Fucito.
They show Royal Danish Air Force F-16s, belonging to the Esk 730 from Skrydstrup, and Italian Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons, of the local based 4° Stormo (Wing), training together during the “Winter Hide 2013″ exercise. This is the second time the Danish have brought their jets to Italy to train in the mild Italian climate dogfighting with the Typhoon, one of the world’s most advanced fighter jets.
More information about Winter Hide exercise can be found here.
An impressive set of pictures (most probably taken with a GoPro camera) has been published by the Royal Danish Air Force’s Fighter Wing Skrydstrup on Facebook.
The photos were taken during training sorties over Italy, where the Danish Fighter Wing is currently deployed for the exercise Winter Hide 2013.
In this post, you’ll find three stunning images, two of those show the Danish F-16s in close formation with a couple of Eurofighter Typhoons of the Italian Air Force.

The following images were taken few days ago, at Grosseto airbase, by The Aviationist’s photographer Giovanni Maduli.
They show Royal Danish Air Force F-16s, belonging to the Esk 730 from Skrydstrup, and Italian Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons, of the local based 4° Stormo (Wing), training together during the “Winter Hide 2013″ exercise.
This is the second time the Danish bring their F-16AM and BM MLU (Mid-Life Update) jets to Italy to train in the mild Italian climate in a period when bad weather usually affects flying operations in Denmark.
Two years ago, Winter Hide 2011 saw 11 F-16s and about 100 military deploy to Grosseto to undertake air-to-air and air-to-surface day and night training with the Italian Air Force prior to taking part to the Libya Air War.
The 2013 edition, from Jan. 14 to Feb. 8, involves 8 planes and 80 military of the RDAF.

The following cockpit footage filmed from a quite unusual point of view shows two Royal Danish Air Force F-16s (not literally “buzzing” but) overflying the Storebæltsbroen in Denmark on a training mission.
Indeed, the camera attacked to the canopy gives a clear view of both the pilot (wearing a JHMCS helmet), the HUD (Head Up Display) and the Storebælt (the Great Belt Bridge), a 18 km long bridge that links the eastern and western parts of Denmark together.
Kudos to the Royal Danish Air Force (Flyvevåbnet) for uploading the video on the official Youtube channel.
Uploaded today to Youtube by the Royal Danish Air Force, the following HD video lets you join a Danish pilot during a solo display practice flight.
The lack of soundtrack give the opportunity to hear the cockpit sounds as the pilot, wearing a JHMCS helmet, pulls some Gs doing aerobatic maneuvers.
Along with the camera used to film the practice flight, you can see the other camera attached to the canopy by means of a suction mount similar to the one you use on your car with a GPS, behind the pilot’s right shoulder.
