Just recovering from a big weekend! It was epic on so many levels, perfection IMO would have been the water bombers again but hell it was just non stop action once again- too much to mention individually. Great to see the special scheme Fennec and AF Super Puma bringing in the PdF (who were sublime) rock up yesterday. Minor irritation was the lack of the special tail Rafale yesterday and the Strutter and DVII not flying but that pales into insignificance with everything else that was on offer - both in the air and not ( :heyhey: :tongue:) Simply glorious; been away too long.

The combination of weather and flying made that one of those shows you'll be talking about for many years. Unforgettable.

Glad you enjoyed it, Sam. Hopefully, like me, you'll become a regular attendee.

I was there on Sunday.
Perfect weather and very dense program: every time I laid down my camera to put some solar cream on me or on the kids, I missed a photo opportunity :sad: . But I prefer that than the opposite.
One of the best Ferté I attended (and I attend every year since 1993). Maybe it's just getting more and more professional and is now lacking the "joyful french controlled disorganization" I witnessed years ago.

Best photos to be published soon. Stay tuned !

Quick question: did anyone that attend happen to know the ID of the BE2 in the static park. It didn't fly on Sunday.

It is the Be2f n°2560 according to the Memorial Flight website - http://memorial.flight.free.fr/ - if you go into the projects tab it is in there. It only recently arrived at LFA I think. Looks lovely, the cockpit detail is amazing.

The show was fantastic, really enjoyed it. The best of the 3 I've done, with fantastic weather to boot. I can only agree with what others have said!
