Raptor on Patrol

Took off out of OTBH (Al Udeid Air Base) in Qatar for a quick patrol up and down the coastline. Did see a Swiss A330 that is now confirmed for 21.4 being flown in testing but kept my distance. Otherwise an uneventful flight overall, with calm winds making the cruise altitude of FL430 a comfortable ride. Expert server as always — enjoy the photos!
