France - Air, Terre et Mer

France - Air, Terre et Mer

Postby Kevin Martin on Thu 03 Jul 2014, 1:39 pm

A busy couple of weeks in June for visits to French bases at Mont de Marsan, Hyeres and Le Luc saw me finally kick start the year aviation wise for me. The Mirage F1 retirement do at Mont De Marsan was quickly followed, after a long drive by the open door event held at Hyeres naval base.

Two weeks later saw the French Army training base at Le Luc hold it's 60th aniversary bash and a good chance to get up close to the Tigre's and NH90's of the French Army.


Thanks for taking the time to look, with more on my Flickr page if intrested...

Very creative photography Kevin :win:

Although lots of different angles on the fighters I am more a fan of your Hyeres and Le Luc work. Beautiful pics in great light :yahoo:

Excellent stuff Kevin, I like the panned Mirage 2000 and some of the choppers are in particularly nice light, 33 for example.
