Re: The 'LUFTMOPED' is back!

Very interesting selection of shots indicative perhaps of some long days spent at the fence. Those Alpha-jets are looking great alongside the main event . (no...not EF-2000's!) Could you please indicate a 'normal' day of activity in terms of missions flown, if such a thing exists? I had hoped to ti...

The 'LUFTMOPED' is back!

The Alpha Jet is back in Germany! After nearly 20 years of absence former Luftwaffe Alpha Jets are gracing German skies again. Civilian contractor Top Aces of Canada have transferred two of these jets to Wittmund in order to boost their fleet of seven A-4N Skyhawks in an effort to win the next contr...

SANICOLE SUNSET SHOW 2019

Friday 13 is not necessarily a bad day. I spent the day’s evening at the Sanicole Sunset Show and I can assure you it was definitely my best Friday 13 so far. The 3hrs flying programme started at 6pm and was a feast of modern and classic aircraft alike, all that in glorious weather conditions. The f...

Wittmund 2019 Review

Wittmund is the only place in this part of the world where you can see Skyhawks in action. Civilian contractor Top Aces is still operating their fleet of seven ex-Israeli A-4Ns from here and their current 5-year contract will terminate by the end of 2019. Although no official announcement about the ...

Re: BigClick67's Kodachrome memories (updated 1st Nov.)

Hi guys! Here comes a selection of French Navy aircraft. Most of these are history by now, with only the Atlantique 2 and the Falcon 50SURMAR still being active with the Aeronavale. Nevertheless the F-8E(FN) ‚CRUZ‘ and the ’SUE’ were iconic Cold War warriors that were always a delight to witness. #7...

Hi all! After a longer break I restart this post with a set of Swiss F-5E/F Tigers that I photographed during several visits to Payerne in the summer of 2005. At that time there were no fences around the base and access was ridiculously easy. The runway has a public road crossing in the middle and d...

Oh dear...what a selection! IAT'95 (not RIAT) was one of the few Tattoos that I managed to miss since my first one in 1989 and now I know for sure that I really...I mean really missed a good one...

Making Airshows (not so) great again...RIAT 2019

Sam Wise’s report on this year’s RIAT brings it to the point (thanks, Sam! well written. Hopefully the gentlemen at DBH read it, too...) so I refrain from further commenting. m Nevertheless it had some great moments and I managed to score a couple of rather decent shots which I would like to share h...
