Avalon Airshow (pic heavy) updated

Hi All,

Haven't been here much lately but thought I would share my take on this years Avalon Airshow. Fortunately the USAF sent a large contingent of aircraft to help fill out the ramp. There were 2 B1-Bs, 1 B-52-H,1 KC-135R,1 KC-10, 3 F-16s, 1 C-130J, 1 C-17 & the 2 F-22s, a nice range of aircraft from various bases. The USN also had a MH-60R on display. Also thanks to the RAF for the E-3, have never seen one before, crew were very friendly & popular with their posters.

Hopefully there is something here to interest someone, thanks for looking

Thanks for the comments guys appreciate it. The weather was a bit off on the Friday, low cloud freezing cold & windy but the Saturday & Sunday were perfect with clear skies all weekend. Much better when I was there in 2009, that was atrocious weather to try & shoot in. As requested have included a couple of shots of the E-3.

WOW! Those pictures are something else! Especially the Hornets and the B-1B - lets all pray the Bone makes it's way over the Atlantic a weekend in July...

As stated earlier, great pictures :clap:

Good to see the US supporting the show so well. I bet the B-1 shook things up a little! :rock:

Looks like a mixed bag weather wise though, similar to when I was there (I can't believe it's been 4 years!).

The Boomerang looks ace! Nice shots all round Richard.
