Russ at Airbourne 2009 *Updated*

Post by Russ »

Lost my Eastbourne virginity last week, attending on Thursday and Friday. Very enjoyable and underated show, hope to be back but for longer next year. All shots taken from the excellent vantage point of the Pier.

The Typhoon and Gnat shots are from the evening show on Friday, I wish more shows would do something like that!

Heavy crop, but you can appreciate the vapour...

Some smashing stuff there Russy. The Typhoon vapour has been evident in every one of it's displays this week. As you said a great airshow and a great vantage point. :wink:

Brilliant shots there Russ like the F-16 shots, I went yesterday and thought the f-16 was the best display :rock:

Final Typhoon shot is luvverly - always good to see the vapour pouring out of the side vents underneath the canopy. Wish there was a seaside show near here.... [grumble]

Well done! :clap:
