Marrakesh Air Expo 2010

Post by rf104g »

Wit a choice between Meiringen Switzerland and Marrakech Morocco. We decided to go to Marrakech. A nice small air show and a even smaller flying display. But still worth the visit

Very nice! Interested to know what flew apart from what you've posted? Marche Verte, presumably?

Two excellent shots and a nice report, too.

Particularly like the Green March shot: who wouldn't want them at Fairford! :biggrin:

Looks like a water bombing system, with some kind of fire retardant chemical in the mix.

Loving the colour schemes. :clap:

this is indeed a Modular Airborne Fire Fighting System or MAFFS in action It is a self-contained unit used for aerial fire fighting that can be loaded onto a C-130 Hercules, next to this system they also have a system for the control of the Moroccan Locust as shown on the picture of the C-130 CNA-OG
