Stuck in Spain.... FAMET Parade June 2014

Postby RichPittman on Thu 26 Jun 2014, 11:18 am

A few photos from the Famet Day parade held in Colmenar Viejo, North West Madrid.
My aim was to get a Spanish Chinook in nice Camouflage.
6 Chinooks took part, 4 in the nice scheme along with 2 puma and 6 EC135.

With thanks to the Air Traffic control strike in France, my flight home was cancelled and I missed my flight to Germany for the Tiger Meet :(
I hope you enjoy the photos

Cheers Rich

I would give up my Tiger shots every day for these kind of shots.
Great set :clap:
Just love that camouflage of these Spanish helicopters.

Great set Rich
It looks like the Spanish Chinook display team with the five in a circle.

Hi Rich,

All very nice and colourful. Unlucky with the strike action effecting Tiger Meet for you too. I've been expecting to have to bin Le Luc this weekend myself until this morning's good news.

Cheers;

Some people always moan....could have been worse.....you could have been stuck in Reading like me!!

Joking aside.....a glorious set Rich, lovely schemes but a beautiful setting too. Really is a delightful place. Let me know when you next get stuck somewhere 'horrible' like Colmenar.

Was good to see Nikki at Fairford the other week.

Best wishes, ian
