Sola air show 2017

Post by shaggy22 »

First airshow of the year for me took me to Norway more specifically the Sola air show at Stavenger airport. The show was meant to be the debut of Starfighter 637 post restoration but unfortunately had a generator leak literally 2 days before the show so it cancelled at the 11th hour. However there was still plenty of good stuff on display as hopefully you'll see in this set.

Great shots. We have a local Storch that I have yet to track down who owns it.

I love to see your photos Dan. It's good to see what the real world aviation scene looks like from time to time.

The two RNoAF F-16As had me thinking one Mig29 at first sight because they are perfectly aligned side by side. It wasn't until I saw the title that I realised it was two aircraft and I managed to sort them out.

Thanks for the nice comments, here is Sundays efforts, as you can probably see the light was pretty bad most of the day, it was also a bit windy but still a very decent show.
