RDAF open house 2016 - Skrydstrup (photo heavy - 43 pics)

I haven't been posted here for a while, but been looking, and I haven't seen a lot of pictures from the RDAF airshow a couple of weeks ago, so I thought I would share some of my pictures from the show, arrivals and spottersday, in no particular order:

And then the stars of the show, if you ask me:

I don't usually edit my pictures that much, but the weather was really dull, so I thought I would give it a go on the alien Hind:

Very nice, I'm really liking the pictures of the Ukrainians, the Flanker is such a photogenic aircraft.

Very nice. Love the Su-27 . How far in advance did the show know that these rare beauties would attend ? It would have made a worthwhile trip.

Secondly can somebody in Denmark please give those is charge at Fairford the Ukrainians phone number. What has Denmark got had Gloucestershire has not ?

The Su-27 was on the list for quite some time actually, I think for at least 3 or 4 month. They were also on the list 2 years ago, but then something happened in Ukraine that made them cancel - something with the Russians... :ninja: I think Denmark has a good relationship with Ukraine, and Denmark have used the Ukrainian Il-76's to different transport jobs in the past, which might be the reasons why they were here?

Some truly excellent images there. It is hard to pick a favourite! I do like the composition of the Merlin at rest in the grass, though.

Excellent set.

Liking all the Flanker shots but another vote for shot 17 of the Merlin in the grass.

I'm guessing the fact that Ukraine wasn't invited this year is a big part of the reason why they're not attending RIAT ;)

I think I'm going to have to get myself to some euro airshows - this one looks like a cracker! Digital Flanker is perfection in aircraft format if you ask me!
