France Sud (week 31-2012) - picture heavy !!!

Postby soundbarrier on Wed 08 Aug 2012, 12:52 pm

Since I had one extra week of vacation I decided to travel to the South of France for a MIL photography trip.

Lots of bases & places were visited like Marseille, Orange, Le Luc, Hyeres, Cuers, Salon, Istres, La Berre, Nimes etc.

Since its holiday season also the south of France does not see to much MIL flying with Orange as the positive exception.

Due to the high temperatures and weak winds heathaze was another challenge.

Here some of the results.

Regarding the ItAF Typhoons (4), I believe they are on the loose now ... "seeing" them at Leeuwarden (NL), Orange (F) and Leuchars very recently, all 36st Stormo.

At Orange they competed against 4 Mirage 2000s :cool:
