Salthill Air Show 2007

Hi Guys, Here's my take of the Salthill Air Show 2007 display day. Weather was crap for most of the show, sun came out in parts but overall very bad for taking piccies. Anyhoo, on with the show, enjoy. Regards, Frank. http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a314/irishairpics/salthill%202007/IMG_9988_ZJ921...

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the feedback on the pictures, sorry for not responding earlier, I didn't get any reply notification emails.

Cosmic, thanks for the comments on the picture on A.net ( it's actually a B707 NATO AWACS trainer) it was quite windy (and wet!) that day.


Regards,

Frank.

Hi Guys, You have to remember the organisers write to practically every air force in Europe & also the USA requesting aircraft. What Salthill gets, with regards to military aircraft anyway, is what the respective governments / air forces decide to send. Another thing to remember is the fact that...
