Hillsboro and Abbotsford airshow arrivals and rehearsals.

Postby Fumbles on Sun 14 Aug 2016, 4:30 am

Sorry I've been away for so long... The past two months have been extremely busy as we travelled to RIAT and the UK for 3 weeks including a quick trip to Paris to see MUSE at the Eiffel Tower! wohoo! what a blast that was. Then a couple weeks after that put us in Hillsboro Oregon to see the special painted Oregon ANG 75th anniversary F-16! Mr Tom/RIAT Air Ops... you'll be glad to know that the Eagle is to remain in the special paint for another year... So RIAT 2017 for the USAF 70th? :) Lastly just the other day we were at the Abbotsford Arrivals/Rehearsals day. Next week I'm off to Nellis AFB for Red Flag 16-4 so there will be a post about that as well in the very near future. For now please enjoy some of the shots I was able to get at these two locations.

Nice selection in great weather by the looks. That Eagle is really something but I also really like the Tw'Otter and that Murphy is probably the finest homebuild - everrr... Love it. :heyhey:

Superb collection of shots with lots of colour evident, Especially that blue around the aircraft? :whistle:
PS:- When do we get to see (quote) "the special painted Oregon ANG 75th anniversary F-16?" :wink:
