Forum rules
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.

Mooi om te zien; Ben daar in 2006/07 6 maanden geweest:
Staan de CASA 212 er nog van de Surinaamse Luchtmacht?

Was wondering there still is a concrete wall around the airfield, are there holes in it that did allow you making your shots or did you use stairs?
Any sign of the 3 Chetak helikopters of the Surinam Air Force?

Cheers,
Ranger

As to above questions :
The concrete wall is still there, with no holes in it. I found a few humps of dirt and other elevations that enabled me to photograph over the wall. The first hump resulted in some 60 ant bites in my feet since it turned out to be an ants nest and I was only wearing flip-flops. After that it got better ;-)
I don't think the CASA's are still there, at least not on the spot they used to be.
A large new hangar has been built. I suspect the Cheetaks in there, but maybe the CASA's are too.
Been in Paramaribo for the most of three weeks, no sign of Cheetaks unfortunately.
A local told me they hardly ever fly.

Thx for your response. Hope your feet are healed after all those bites.
