Zwartkop Airshow 2014

Postby bushman on Sun 11 May 2014, 10:31 am

On two perfect days on South Africa's Highveld, the South African Air Force Museum hosted what turned out to be one of the most dynamic and thrilling airshow South Africa has seen in many years. The skies were filled with vintage and new aircraft of all shapes and sizes. The event was a massive success for the Air Force. Photography conditions were perfect, and one simply could not do anything wrong with a camera in hand!

Brilliant catches there from what looks like a very good day! 1st Gazzelle shot and 4th BA shot for me! Interesting angle of bank on that 737 shot!

Very polished set with too many highlights to list. 737/Silver Falcons break really does stand out, that said - excellent!
