La Ferte Alais - 23 & 24 May - *Pic Heavy*

Postby John_E on Sat 30 May 2015, 10:21 am

Cracking show last week at La Ferte Alais. Light was tricky at times but the show itself was excellent, non-stop action from midday onwards. Definitely one I'll be doing again.

Not unless the sun was shining from below!! The craziest helicopter display I've seen, makes the Lynx look pedestrian.

Thanks for the comments chaps. It's a great little show with a generally relaxed atmosphere and some cracking food stalls!! :drool:

That Bolkow shot is NOT the wrong way up! That display was amazing with that a/c doing things that I did not believe were possible for a helicopter. The manoeuvre that had me gasping started as a tailslide but continued with the a/c rotating about its vertical axis.
Nice pics by the way. It wasn't an easy day for photography.

Cracking set, looks like a top quality airshow with a good variety of aircraft types. Quite like the CL-415/Tracker shot!

Looked like a great show with some nice warbirds there, also nice to see the topside of the 'Monster Tiger' Rafale, well done.
