Slovenia and the South of France

Slovenia and the South of France

Postby Kevin Martin on Mon 27 Jun 2011, 4:25 pm

A mixed bag of photo’s taken from a glorious week of sunshine in Southern Europe. The French Army show at Le Luc, with a visit to Marseille Airport to see if anything interesting was around , finished of with a couple of days in Slovenia to visit the air base at Cerklje ob Krki and the chopper detachment at Ljubljana airport . Lots of choppers for those that like that kind of thing, but plenty of other stuff thrown in too to mix it up a bit......

Thanks for looking;

A stunning collection of images, great variety too! :clap: :cool:

Great to see that Nord Noratlas is still flying too. I did wonder what had happened to it. Remember it gave a cracking display at Coventry Air Day 2003.

More salt in the wounds with that lovely NH90 shot, Christ why did I have to Le Bourget?

Great variety and light. Would love some more of the Noratlas. Less fond of the long crops and black borders.
