Abingdon Air & Country Show 2017

Post by FastJetsBest »

Hey,

Great day at my first airshow this year. Weather was warm/cold/sunny/cloudy with a bit of rain :grin:

Few pictures from the day, will edit more as I get round to them.

Quite an extensive range of aircraft on show and they're all great images. The Lightning would be a thrill to see and hear.
Cheers,

Nice set - the JP take off shot is super (and my favourite JP to boot!). I do like the Lightning, one of those model shots that's actually quite hard to spot the difference on.

That said, I think the last one is actually my favourite - those eyes - look out Abingdon mice! :shock: :hide:

Think you'll find the Lightning is a rather convincing model.

Great set and a good souvenir for me as my shots are no where near as good! That LX model was a good flyer as well as a detailed model.

That Lightning is the mutt's nuts. Just as well I knew it was a model or I'd have wet myself with excitement. :)
