Re: Tornado Farewell Photo shoot 25th January 2019

I suspect then that there more Brits, travelling more than 6-7000 miles each that were able to freely attend the public send off for the Japanese F-4's of 302 Hikotai than will be able to attend this "event".

Finnish Airforce - May 2018

During w/c 14th May saw the Finnish Airforce hold its annual open doors style events to demonstate its people and machinary in action. Having been to a few of these before, this was the first time in at least 10 years when all four were held on consecutive days, even if this did cause some serious d...

Finland - May 2017 Some shots from the Finnish airforce bases of Tampere, Tikkakoski and Kuopio that opened their doors during May as a bit of a recruitment/PR exercise. Most shots are from Tampere as that day coincided with the arrival of the first bit of summer weather, of which the more northern ...

Re: BA 115 Orange-Caritat 15-17.05.17

Nice shots from a great place to visit. Had quite a few hours there whilst driving on to Paul Ricard over recent years, usually melting in +30c temps. Unlike yourself though, I've never managed to get a usable shot on the ground yet due to excessive heat haze.

Cheers;

As I seem to be watching more racing than aviation this year I thought I would put up a bit of a selection of shots from various events attended so far this year. Mostly sports car racing but if there is one thing that brings its a bit of colour to your photo's, something my aviation shots seem to b...

Hi All, my photo's from my annual trip to Switzerland for Sion's repetition course. Standard grey F-5's were thin on the ground at Sion with only the one F-5F making a late appearance in the week, but at least the Patrouille Suisse made for a colourful alternative. All was not lost though and a bit ...

The French and Belgian's did however ...

The Italian Airforce airshow at Rivolto celebrating the 55th anniversary of the Frecce Tricolori was my late choice of an overseas airshow to attend this year, hoping for some guaranteed good weather.

Plenty of action despite a dodgy first day and half of weather, with the French and Germans being notable visitors at Emmen and Alpnach. Its a ...
