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.

Pau CIV/MIL oktober 2021

Post by janneman36 »

Pau airport.

Pau is an partly military airport and there is a lot of parachuting action and there have been a lot of dutch C-130 movements as well over here.
The French Tigre helicopter is a regular helicopter to be seen here.
The only airworthy Noratlas is also a regular visitor wich does paradrops as well for the military.
Best part of the day for spotting is mostly in the afternoon when it is sunny due to the position of the runway .

Off airport there is an museum for the french parachute regiments and they have an Noratlas and Puma on display outside.

Lasclaveries.
Aircraft departing here are seen on adsb or flightradar24 as departed from PUF/PAU airport but the fields are an aproximate 10 kilometers apart of each other.
On this particular day they flew a lot of military parachutists sometimes the Twin Otter operates from here as well.
