Very nice!

Like the nozzles of the F-15K and that C-17 has seen better days

Agree with Chris. I really like the KF-16D. It's a nice combination of greys on those jets. (Does that sound a bit boring?)

The T-50s look lovely too.

Thanks for posting about this year's air show in Seoul. I'm really hoping to make it there next year for the event. Do you happen to know what time of year it typically takes place? Hoping to start planning my trip. The Black Eagles display sounds incredible - I'd love to see the T-50s performing. Did the show have a big crowd this time? Always fun to take in an air display with lots of excited spectators. Thanks for sharing the photos as well, it gives me an idea of what to expect if I can make it over for next year's show.

Bloody Aircraft totally spoilt that gorgeous text! :wink: Thank God for slightly less manic Watermarking & a reduction in prolific non-paying Sponsors these days? :face_vomiting:

Haha yeah, I definitely missed that it was from 2010! Photobucket would've been the go-to then. At least the F-4 photos still gave a sense of what the show was like.

I'm actually still hoping to check out an air show in Seoul in the next year or two. Do any of you know if they have them on a regular annual schedule still? It would be cool to time a trip for one.

The 2025 edition of Seoul ADEX takes place from the Tuesday, October 21, 2025 - Sunday, October 26, 2025. Plenty of time to fill the travel coffers with 1,638.75 'South Korean Won' =£1 GBP. :sunglasses:

Thanks for confirming the schedule, that's really helpful info! October 2023 is too late for me, but 2025 could definitely work. Do you happen to know if tickets need to be purchased way in advance or if they'll still be available closer to the dates? Also, any recommendations for accommodation - is it easy enough to find a hotel near the airport for the show dates? It would be awesome to make a long weekend of it and check out some of Seoul as well. This gives me plenty of time to save up - I'm really looking forward to seeing the incredible aircraft.

While searching about other things to do in Seoul, I came across this guide for Seoul tourism stats recently https://gowithguide.com/blog/seoul-tour ... guide-5535 There was a section on transportation that mentioned the KTX bullet train makes for an easy day trip from Seoul to other parts of the country. Sharing it here. You may find it helpful as well.

Given that this is a thread from 2011, I’ll lock it now as it’s getting in the way of current users posting photos.

Do please feel free to start a new thread for the next show in the “Worldwide Events” sub-forum.

Cheers

👍🏻
