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.

Paris (La Defense) 9 July 2013 rehearsal day

Post by Niek »

Today was the final rehearsal of the aerial element that will take part in the Quatorze Juillet parade over Paris coming Sunday.
Naturally I had to plan a 1.5 hr "coffeebreak", as my office is located almost underneath the parade line :)

Please find below an impression. From some formations, only the formationleader was present.
