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.

Love the Sea Fury.

How does he make the circles :o ???
very simple: smoke from the wingtips deformed behind the S Fury due to the turbulence generated by the aircraft (and its massive prop ! )
Ans when it flies trough its own smoke you get the weirdest figures:

Can I also join the fun? :)
The show at La Ferté-Alais was indeed a great event where basically the entire history of aviation passes by.
Here are some of my impressions from Saturday.

Image
A 1938 Stinson Reliant

Two Mirage 2000Ns from Nancy decided to give the field a wakeup call before the actual show had started. Clearly, I was not awake yet. I was just enjoying a sandwich and my camera was in my bag with completely incorrect setting. So this is the best I could eventually make out of it on the computer

Image
Naturally the Gendarmerie was also there to ensure that traffic was running smooth....

Image
The only real Junkers 52 present

Image
This Casa 352L is pretending to be a German Junckers 52.

Image
Opening of the show with 2 Super Etendards and a Paris

Image
After the Paris Demo, the 2 Super Etendards gave a kick-ass display.

Image
Back to the early days of aviation with the Morane Saulnier MS.138

Image
One of the many Focke-Wulf Fw.44J Stieglitz'

Image
Airbus also came to show the A.400M. Not very impressive though, it left after two low-passes over the field.

Image
Der Dreidecker

Image
Sopwith Camel

Image
This is what dogfights looked like in the 1st World War.

Image
Bücker Jungmeister

Image
Another Focke-Wulf Stieglitz

Image
Curtiss H75-C1

Image
Alte Tante Ju

Image
The mother of all STOL aircraft, the Fieseler Storch. I think it would make a Harrier pilot feel jealous.

Image
The Harvard that was heavily modified to look like a Japanese Zero.

Image
A P-40 Warhawk with the smoke of one of the attacks in the background. Minor detail was that these attacks also set the grass on fire and kept the Pompiers quite entertained

Image
Red Bull sent the beautiful silver P-38.

Image
Nooky Booky IV is a P-51D

Image
The Equipe de Voltige of the Armée de l'Air showed her Extra 300.

Image
Back to the roots with a Bleriot XI2 replica.

Image
The famous Hawker Fury FB.10.

Image
De Belgische Rode Duivels were there as well. I personally thought that their show was rather dull and far away.

Image
Breitling Wingwalkers

Image
The beautifully restored Skyraider, including armament and a nice droptank.

Image
Flamant formation

Image
The Skyraiders come in for attack.

Image
EC 7 decided to use her Tiger Rafale for the show.
