Indian Air Force [IAF] SEPECAT Jaguar & MiG-21 fighter aircraft [photographs]


Had seen these photographs [below], earlier, on the Airliners website. But, as with all photographs there, they had been watermarked with their name. Not intrusive - tastefully done, unlike the hideousness some folks inflict upon pictures in their "possession"1. Nevertheless, the joy of seeing these beauties in their full glory, unblemished by any watermark, is a different treat altogether.


Therefore, was pleasantly surprised to discover that these pictures had been shared by the person who had shot them, without any watermarks, on Fighter Control, a wonderful forum were Military Aviation photographers & Aircraft Spotters participate.

1 - Are they even allowed to watermark it, considering most of the pictures they receive originate from the government Press Information Bureau [P.I.B], as part of press release?
