Myself and Mark K decided to try somewhere different and im very glad we did. The show itself is very relaxed and great fun, unfortunatly shooting into the sun can be tricky at times, but very much worth a visit. Still got hundreds of shots to sort through from the last 5 days but heres a couple to get started:















Special thanks to Joe Ciliberti, Mark Stephenson and their whole team for allowing us access. There will be a report coming to the website soon

Good stuff Graham, cracking show wasn’t it? Loved the relaxed atmosphere, my highlights were the water bomber, the Italian 212 SAR demo and departure day (how cool was that German Tonka Fly-Past?!) loved being able get up close as the crews got ready to depart and taxi right past just inches away, my ears are still ringing from standing right next to those Dutch F16’s

The banter with the flight crews was great and they were all very happy to chat and show their aircraft to everyone.

A big thank you to Joe and Mark for the great access. Hope that this show goes from strength to strength, I think that I’ll be back next year.

Going to sort through my shots at some point this week once I’ve got the car sorted
