Jersey Air Display 2017

Evening all,

As it was mentioned in another thread, I thought it was about time I shared some of my pictures from another three days on the Channel Islands.

Some great and unique pulls in terms of the line-up, the Swedish quartet, finally seeing the Alize make it across, plus the Baltic Bees UK debut being just a few highlights.

The weather Wednesday and Thursday was far from clement, gusting winds made displaying and even getting to Jersey a real struggle for some items, talking to Remko Sibjen (Stinson Reliant) and the Patrouille Reva pilots highlighted how tough flying some of lower powered and lighter aircraft was.

Spent Wednesday and Friday at the airport, where most of the pictures here were taken from, and Thursday down in St Helier. Seemed to be a lot less people watching the show down in the town, though I can't help but feel the lack of nine red jets may not have helped this.

Not being able to get to the castle makes photography a bit more difficult, but sometimes it's nice to have a challenge, though it did highlight that I may need to upgrade from my trusty 70-300 for flying shots.

On with the pictures.

Cheers for looking.
