Another spectacular shot from the Airpower05 air-show - these sequence is called "touch-and-go" which means that the pilot initiates a landing and in the very last moment before the wheels touch the runway he lifts off again - enjoy!
Details about the F-16 Fighting Falcon:
With around 4,000 aircraft produced in 110 different versions, today’s most-built jet continues to set standards. The F-16 has been used as a multi-purpose combat plane in 22 countries and has completed over nine million flying hours altogether since the model was first put into service in 1978. It was also the first US jet to be fitted with a fly-by-wire system – in other words, a system featuring the electronic transmission of the pilot’s commands to the control surfaces. Without this system the plane would be barely flyable, since its airfoils are not rounded. But it is precisely this instability which lends the F-16 its legendary maneuverability. After takeoff, it can climb to 11,000 meters’ altitude in just three-and-a-half minutes.

thanks for your comment though the picture shouldnґt show power rather then whatґs artistic flight-maneuvers are possible.
