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.

La Ferté-Alais airshow 18 May 2013

Post by Niek »

Last Saturday I went to the annual airshow at La Ferté-Alais, after the positive experience I had last year.
However, this year the conditions were slightly different. In the morning there was still a glimpse of sunshine, but around lunchtime (when the actual show started), the skies turned very grey and we had our fair share of rain as well.
Below are some impressions from this wet, cold, rainy day.

The advantage of grey weather is that the afterburners show quite nicely

How much mm do you need for pictures on the runway?

200-300mm is sufficient for shots on the runway.
Please note that the aircraft taxi right in front of you nose before take-off. For the 'groundwork' not many mm is needed at La Ferté !

Kind regards,

Laurent
