Night activity in Grosseto airbase

On Dec. 5th I went again to Grosseto to make take some long exposure shots during night activities (see also my previous post: http://cencio4.wordpress.com/2007/08/09/eurofighter-night-take-off/).

This last picture deserves a comment: if you look at the top of the image, you’ll notice that the red strobe light blinking underneath the aircraft and reflecting on the fuselage and the wing, generates a series of red dots that recall the shape of the wings of the C-27J.
