The air show was described as one of the bigger ones in the world. And they have many each year – it definitely didn’t disappoint. All kinds of different airplanes and helicopters, ready to fly.
This shot gives a sense of the size of the event (this is just one way) … lots of planes on the field.
Not sure I would be up for a loop in what looks like a 70 year old Corsair …. (I need a 2X extender on my 70-200mm).
A lot of these planes are owned by consortiums. Flying enthusiasts who own a ‘share’ of the plane. They all pay for the upkeep and take turns flying it. I remember the announcer specifically mentioning that with this plane.
A great day out.
