This is what looks like to fly an F-16 in close formation with two Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets

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.

“Winter Hide 2013”: Danish F-16s and Italian Eurofighter Typhoons joint air combat training

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.
