Ola, from sunny Santiago and the FIDAE 2010 airshow, I thought I would post a few shots from this marvellous little event. Been snapping as and when I can, so here is just a taster of some of the aircraft taking part or just seen here. Many thanks to UKAR member 'shocman' who has been a fantastic guide to both the show and the city.
Just to point out, I haven't just gratuitously decided to post airshow images in Modern Mil, some of these aircraft are heavily involved in the humanitarian air bridge operation between here and Concepcion following the earthquake there less than a month ago. Even with the airshow on, aid is still flowing out of Pudahuel AB heading south.
No amount of rain dancing is going to create precipitation here old boy, there's been barely a cloud in the sky since I arrived, utterly exhausting heat. As for the Twin Otters, they have been up and down all week working on the airbridge or dropping parachutists, great little machines.
Lovely& interesting set throughout! A few goodies there then! Pretty sure that FK28 has passed thro' Glasgow a few times over the years as did the Chilean AF C130's. 996 rings a bell. They wore camo back then (late '70's). Come to think of it so did most of the Casa 212's!
