Three days at Jersey Air Display

Three days at Jersey Air Display

Postby james908 on Thu 20 Sep 2018, 2:30 pm

Hi all,

Made my now annual three day trip down to Jersey last week for the air display.

The line-up had some great gems in it, with the SwAFHF twin-stick Viggen and single-seat Draken, the Noratlas, and the Flamant duo, to name a few.

Most of Wednesday was spent at the airport static, with the display open until 8pm allowing for some night shots, though the wind and rain made it quite challenging.

As a result of the wind and rain, most items needed to do a display validation on the Thursday morning, so I headed back up to the airport to do the static display in good light, as well as watch some of the acts depart and recover, before watching the show from the seafront.

It was back up to the airport on Friday for departures, where the light came good again.

Possibly the last show appearance for an RAF Tucano?

All in all, it was another great show, and after chatting to Mike Higgins at length on Friday afternoon, next year will be just as good.

Any comments or feedback would be gladly received on the picture front, plenty more on my Flickr.

Cheers,

James
