Re: Emmen AFB Air Show

I so wish you (and others here) would avoid putting this many images in your first post of the thread. Makes it very difficult to come back and read comments later.

Hope to view them when they all open in a few minutes. I'm on high speed cable but not high enough for the volume of this one post.

Re: Emmen AFB Air Show

Wow, how courageous of you...

I gave up on photos, knowing I'd be deceived in any case if I tried to insist. Not worth it to get a free shower... Such weather just shouldn't be allowed at airshows

The only thing I did that was particularly interesting me, with very average results, was the A330/PS formation - let's fill the gap as you didn't post any of that:

Maybe you're on that one?

After that I just stayed inside... LOL

Re: Emmen AFB Air Show

Lots of excellent shots!

I do agree with Newsyl about splitting up so many shots.
