Roskilde Airshow 2017

Roskilde Airshow 2017

Postby Macc on Wed 23 Aug 2017, 2:32 pm

Every two years the Danish Air Force hosts their main airshow at one of the military bases on the western island of Denmark. In between those two years, a smaller show is held at Roskilde Airport, a small civil airport about 30 minutes from Copenhagen. It has attracted some interesting items in the past although this was my first time going and it brought some interesting items this edition too!

Fast jet action was provided by the Danish F-16 and French Rafale with various military helicopters including the Swiss Super Puma and the Dane's own Merlin aswell as the retiring Lynx and replacement Seahawk. The majority of the rest were warbirds and civilian items which completed a very interesting line-up and the size of the show made for a very relaxed day.

It was also my first time out with a 300mm + 2x converter although my D600 is out of use so it was up to the D90. I also need to go to the gym so I can learn to hold it better...

A very interesting show very nicely shot there. :clap:

It really is refreshing to see things you can't see anywhere else. And I make a mental note to make this show at some point in the future.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

I'm looking forward to the next show in 2019 - I missed the Friday evening and Sunday shows but next time I also know the outside spots too. If you want any information about it you are more than welcome to drop me a message.
