A short overview of this air show.

My web page [ruialves.madeiraspotters.net]

The flight display was about to begin an I finally managed to get in the
air field.
(the day started early in the moorning and my camera settings, as you can see, were not updated :( )

The Red Arrows and a bit Heart to all the crowd

Another passage and an overview of the field

A380 and the crowd :)

Tilt rotor: finally!! :)

What a bigggg wing! :)
10mm lense ;)

As I moved down on the field the crowd was bigger and bigger….

Russian fighter own by Germans

Meanwhile… the airshow is made up pf queues… :D

… and people from all over the world.
Most of them trying to capture the best angles and images…

… the kids… they love aircrafts…
but icreams and fun is also welcome ;)

And thats all for the first day.
It's time to go home while the airfield slowly gets empty of all that huge crowd…

Goooooooodddd Moooooooorninggggggg Faaaaarnborooooooough!
(oh sorry, I guess I've heard something like this… but I just can't remember where… :P)

Catalina was really an attraction.
Check out all the guys on the ATC tower balcony ;)

Again the arrows

And… YES!

While the crowd enjoyed this afterburner sound…

…others get scarred with it :(
Oh yes!
There's nothing like your mother's arms ;)

Eurofighter: time to land.

F16 about to touch-down.

F18 and some arrows parked

Search over the internet and you'll understand why they call it like this ;)

Canards and nose detail.

Powerfull displays must be prepared ;)

Cargo An26





And a lucky star :)
