The photo was taken by a US Navy officer during an exercise

A spectacular image of two Spanish frigates and three French aircraft

I don't usually dedicate an article to a single photo, but there are times when that image deserves its own entry, like the one you see here.

From May 8 to 26, the Formidable Shield 2023 exercise will be held at the firing ranges of Andoya (Norway) and the Hebrides (United Kingdom), according to reported the Spanish Navy last week. This is a multinational exercise whose purpose is "to assess the capabilities of the participating nations, and demonstrate their interoperability, againstcomplex threats in realistic Air Defense and Anti-Missile scenarios.".

A few days ago, DVIDS posted a spectacular photo of this exercise, taken by a US Army officer. In the image we can see two F-100 frigates of the Spanish Navy, the "Álvaro de Bazán" F-101 and the "Blas De Lezo" (F103). But there is something else (you can click on the image to see it enlarged).

As you can see in this enlargement of the image, two Dassault Rafale fighters and an E-2C Hawkeye early warning aircraft from the French National Navy fly over the Spanish frigates. The aircraft are part of the air wing of the French aircraft carrier "Charles de Gaulle" R-91.

The photo was taken on May 15. Congratulations to its author, it is really an excellent photo.
