I think the topic might be

Military aviation slang/buzz phrases

  1. Mayday - Distress call, comes from the French M’aidez (help me).

  2. Dogfight - Aerial engagement with the enemy, usually at close range

  3. Bandit (from one-armed bandit or slot machine) - The bad guy in the dogfight ie the enemy

  4. Fox, or more specifically Fox 1 - call given to indicate launch of an air-to-air missile (Fox 1 indicating launch of sparrow missile, as opposed to fox 2 or fox 3)

I think the topic could be..

Rally

Because..

Pic1 - may day, where rallies usually take place worldwide. Pic2 - clash, clashes are likely to happen during rallies. Pic3 - bandit(from one armed bandit), usually bandits are gang-members and some operates in large groups and engage in rallies(bandidos, hells angels, etc..). Pic4 - Fox, I associate this with "Fox News". Not unusal to see different type of rallies on the news.
