Whoa! I would call that "just in time". Probably.

Not to be critical or technical but the Hun should be behind him at his six to be "in the sun"

Not necessarily. The object is to be upsun, between the sun and the other pilot's line of vision. The dazzle from the sun prevents any observation. This could be from just about any angle.

I think my german LFA should be aware of the Avenger in the Aurora!

(but yeah, hun in the sun was meaning to not get lazy and keep your head on a swivel. Came from WWI where it was standard training for the germans to maneuver such that they were between the target and the sun and then attack such that the target could not react as they couldnt see them coming until the last minute. So where ever the sun was might be a german getting ready to jump.

We headed north to downtown Denver, then around Mt. Evans, then back over the foothills.
Downtown Denver


Sports Authority Field, aka Mile High Stadium


Our destination, Mt. Evans Wilderness Area


The Sawtooth Ridge. It connects Mt. Evans to Mt. Bierstadt

One more. My Asus tablet is being a PITA with linking these pics and such.

This is my parent's (and my) old house in Conifer. It is the house and detached garage to the right of the oval, plowed pond. They had 11 acres but sold it to retire in France!

No real flight time for me. Just building time on Microsoft flight simulator. Been building time in a 767-300ER. Had a couple night approaches yesterday with 2 mile visibility, 700 ceiling, and snowing. Full ILS of course. I like the challenge.
