Welcome to CAVOK Military Aviation Photographs by Hans Rolink.
In these pages, I aim to give an impression about current military aviation, covering events like airshows and exercises throughout Europe and the rest of the world as well. Also, I will show the inventory of some Air Forces of which I had the privilege to visit.

Why CAVOK? It stands for Clouds and Visibility OK, the circumstances we are looking for to take our pictures.

Currently, I use the following equipment:

Nikon D300

Nikon D7100

Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 G ED AF-S 

Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-D ED

Nikon 300mm f/4D ED IF AF-S

Nikon CoolScan V film scanner
