Photographer's Note

F16 Fighting Falcon of the "Teamwork" of the Royal Netherlands Air Force in a spectacular and sudden re-takeoff, during the airshow "Air 04" in Payerne - Switzerland!
... I see the aircraft approaching quietly already in a final phase of landing, the back gears on ground, without smoke trail. I think this is the end of its display... But no, this crazy re-accelerates again and I have just the time to take the camera to immortalize the instant. Just then I feared the worst, but the pilot gives it the full throttle with a deafening noise to continue its incredible show. I put in WS a shot taken a few seconds before, when he was again on ground. Continued in the next episode...

The pilot is the Captain Christian van Gestel from the 322 Squadron, based at the Leeuwarden airbase. He totals about 1600 hours of flight on F16.

I am not very satisfied with the overall quality of this shot, and in particular by the colorimetry. Well, there is a bit of action!
