Lovely shots. I don't know about you but I really struggled in places shooting through some of the stay behind smoke of the display teams.

Lovely sharp set there. I guess you were at the eastern end of the airfield. The Rafale shots stand out for me. :clap:

This was only a problem on the Sunday (8th.) Apart from the "long march," that was the only real bug-bear of what was a really well organised event. The display teams seemed to lack the flexibility to curtail their use of smoke, adding to what was an obviously worsening situation. Usually there is sufficient wind or rising air to clear the air but it even continued to lay around the airfield even after the hour long lunch break. The only real "victims" were the teams themselves and the Super Constellation.
