Re: Zigermeet Mollis 17.08.2019

Thanks to all of you for your replies. Mollis is a very nice show and I recommend that you make it there next time around, which is probably in 2021 or 2022. Next time I will try that clearing up on the mountain on the other side. Guess I was just lucky with the first one capturing those shockwaves ...

Zigermeet Mollis 17.08.2019

Nothing better than a airshow in a tight Swiss valley. Running a competition for the future fighter aircraft also certainly helped to bring up participants. Rafale clearly took top honours giving a truly shocking demonstration of its performance. #1 https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48586573606_6b...

Re: RAF Lakenheath - 28th & 29th December

.... For some reason that I don't know, the radome shape varies, some are more pointed than others, you can see it clearly on Dan's pics. Up until a few years ago the pointy noses were used on live missiles only and the blunt ones on acquisition rounds. As I was told the pointy noses apparently hav...

Austrian Airpower and friends

Hi! Working through the pics shot last Friday, here`s a first selection. Excellent show again with the Swedes being the stars of the show - for me at least. Wouldn´t have dreamt to see a Draken and Viggen airborne again a few years back and with the stunning backdrops of Zeltweg and excellent weathe...

Re: Green Shield - Saudis and French over Nancy

Very nice Joerg, although some of your Mirage 2000Ds are Mirage 2000Ns (with the grey underside and black radome.) Chris, they all are Mirage 2000Ds and none of them has a black radome or grey undersides. You can easily identify 2000Ds by the large chaff/flare dispenser on the spine, the radome wit...

Green Shield - Saudis and French over Nancy - Updated

Hi! Opened the new season yesterday with a day trip to Nancy to see the Saudi F-15s which had come to play with the Armee de l'Air in Exercise Green Shield 2014. Had a really nice day with two rounds of flying action. Each wave consisted of 4 F-15s, 2 Rafales, 4 Mirage 2000-5F and 6-8 Mirage 2000Ds ...

During the last week the 2 based squadrons FlSt 11 Tigers (F-18C) and FlSt 8 (F-5E) provided air policing for the world economic forum at Davos. The two units launched 2 t...

Hi all, back from a memorable trip to Moscow for the 100th anniversary airshow of the Russian Airforce. And what a show it was. For me this was the best show ever!

The worst performance was by 230Sqn/RAF, who did not care to do even a single flypast for the approximately 500 spotters! Wouldn´t even have noticed if they didn´t participate at all. Anybody with connections to 230Sqn, please go and tell them. I'll pass that on to the crew for you! I think they di...
