ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Forca Aerea Portuguesa - Evora 2018

Post by Sullivan »

Due to work commitments I found myself missing the Llandudno Armed Forces day and instead in the tiny city of Evora, Portugal.

As I approached the outskirts of the city I was over-passed by a C130 Hercules closely followed by a quartet of F-16's in box formation close to the small municipal airfield. Finding it strange as it was a Saturday, I continued to the hotel to check in, to be greeted by another pair of F-16's ripping towards the airport. Catching a cab into the city the driver explained it was a celebration of 66 years of the air force and on this occasion it was being held in Evora. Bingo!, except I had no camera gear as I was there to work :grr:

A small display was set up in the city, followed by a small airshow on Sunday at the airport.

Below is a brief log and some snaps from my iphone as there really was no point in trying to photograph the active flying display.
