BAF Open Days Florennes

Post by shaggy22 »

This was a cracking show with what seemed like most acts in Europe being invited & actually turning up. Just a shame I had a nightmare getting to & from the show. Also as you'll be able to see the weather for the most part was pretty pants, low cloud & some heavy rain knocking about at times. On the plus side I did gt to meet our resident Air Traffic Controller & admin, Greg :D . Here are the pics from the first day of a 2 day event.

You're quite right, now I'm suitably embarrassed. I blame the long days & lack of sleep

Great weather for vapour shots! ;)

Thanks for the photos. I was working during the A400M flyby and missed it. Together with the Connie about the only one I really really wanted to see as I always seem to miss it somehow.

Day 2, the weather was a little better this time, still some very heavy showers around & there was a nice lightning storm that passed to the north of us, didn't hit us fortunately. There didn't seem to be as much flare action as the day before for some reason. Missed the last portion of the display as I'd had enough of the weather & i had to catch the last bus to Dinant.

#86 wins. I don't know what the competition was, just that #86 won. Spectacular shot.

86 is awesome, one could almost photoshop in a Blue Angel solo, as I've seen a similar shot, same LEX vapes and all.

I would love to see the iconic Mig-29 with western engines!
