La Ferte Alais airshow 19 & 20-05-2018 late update

Post by SEMAE »

This time I did not go with anyone else but I did meet a friend at the show which is convenient as we can look after each others bags whilst the other looks at the static.

There was no Friday in to Saturday midnight crossing across the sea and outside the gates of the airfield at 07.15 French time this year Instead, I went over Friday morning and took a leisurely drive down the A1 to Paris before resetting my navigator to Meaux- Esbly then resetting it again for Guigness then when within 7 miles of that town resetting again for the hotel address in Evry, all or the purpose of avoiding the Paris ring road. On the way home, the route was clear.

Despite two nights at a hotel, when I left the show on Sunday, I still succumbed in the early hours of Sunday morning to taking a nap at Clacket Lane services on the M25. I did not get home until 6 am.

There is an air show at Meaux- Esbly on 24/06/2018 but as I am working Monday, that show will be a miss.

Thanks foe looking. More to come.

Lovely stuff - some cracking flypasts in there aren't there?! :clap: :shock:
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

Wonderful stuff. What a lovely show. Once spent a student exchange trip in La Ferte Alais. I remember looking out of my bedroom window and seeing a Mirage F1 fly past. I was too young and shy to speak much French though so my lovely host family eventually just shrugged and treated me as a friendly ghost who needed feeding.
