Air Show
« on: June 11, 2009, 04:05:55 AM »
I went to a small local air show tonight. It was great fun. Here are a few pictures I took when I was there.










































It was enjoyable. At least the weather cooperated, oh and the black flies enjoyed their feast.

F86's and Strikemaster's, what more do you need :tu:

Hornet's are fine, I just don't much like modern-ish aircraft :)

Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

Excellent shots mate, really great job.

I remember when I used to go to air shows in the UK, but I've not seen one for ages.  I'll have to start looking for them (it can't be hard).

Really liking the shot of those aircraft mate, thanks for posting :tu:

I know very little about planes but I know that you take great pics of them!

The formation stuff is so damn impressive - how do they not smash each other up all the time? Surely they start off being not so bloody clever at it and have to practise  :think:

Yeah, the snowbirds are Canada's National Aerobatic team. They are all from the best of the best that Canada's air force has to offer. They do put on a great show.

The planes they fly are very old. They started using them back in 71, and stopped training with them back in 00. They are thinking about replacing the planes…but it is the planes that give them their iconic image to Canadians.
Here is their web site for the curious.

That false canopy was a Canadian innovation for their CF-18s,and so initially successful in confusing observers that it was adopted by some other air forces flying the Hornet.
