Shaun's Yeovilton extravaganza

Postby Seamus on Tue 03 Jul 2018, 6:58 am

Morning all,

My fortnight of binging on airshows got underway a few days early with this year with a flying visit to Yeovilton last night to catch the arrival of the Canadian CF-188s. Two great looking jets in lovely light, it's a fine start to what promises to be an incredible show. I'll update this thread regularly, but for now, here's those lovely Hornets...

Thanks chaps, good to catch up with you over the weekend Wes :cool:

I had planned to update this thread daily but didn't find the time, so here's a small selection from each of the last four days from in and around the base. Comfortably the best Yeovilton I've attended in recent memory, a truly fantastic show in just about every regard :clap: :clap: :clap:

A couple of tasty bonus visitors on Thursday....

Will maybe add some more once I've had a chance to edit them, but sleep has to take priority before RIAT! Hope they were of interest

Cheers,

Great stuff Shaun - looks like you made the best of those lovely, sunny, boiling hot, hazey daze...

Guess you were in the fields near the sheep field for that Greek F16 banking in to land on friday. Lovely angle. I got there just in time to catch the last rehearsals but didn't recognise anyone as I wandered in (and a few were wandering out)... maybe bump into you during the next week - have fun (after your rest period!)

Nice album. Think the Rafale with partner in the background could be a great B&W?
