La Ferté-Alais Airshow

Every year at the pentecost week-end the Cerny airfield near La Ferté-Alais, which is located around 90km south of Paris, is the big meeting point for the French and European Warbird and Oldtimer-scene. This year the weather was unfortunately not the very best with continuous rain on Saturday morning.

LineupWhere? Cerny/La Ferté-Alais - France
When? 14-15/05/2005

MatschCrowdThis resulted in a cancellation of the flight displays until midday and sludge all over the place, under which a lot of the shoes and trouser of the persistent visitors had to suffer. Because even despite miserable weather conditions a lot of people attend the show and their endurance was rewarded with a nice flight display in the afternoon after the 'flooding' has stopped.
The display had to be shortened of course, nevertheless after some WW I the highlights in form of the Spitfire Mk. XIX and the German Bf 109 G-4 from Albstadt were presented in the Extrem Spotterair. The third highlight, the Hawk 75, unfortunately had to stay in England due to the bad weather. Further demonstartions were flown by the B-17, Ju-52 or the Dassault Flamant. Crowd2Especially the view of the 109 together with the Ju-52 was something a lot of enthusiats had long to wait for. After nearly 4 hours of non-stop flight demonstartions the day was concluded with a jet display by a French AF Mirage 2000 and the Patrouille Breitling with their L-39s.
All things considered the show was well worth the trip to France the show was really entertaining, with a nice commentary throughout the show and a beautiful backdrop for the flight demonstrations. Regarding the very special french atmosphere I will try to pay this show another visit next, with hopefully better weather. Which was good on Sunday, btw, and the full flight display was held that day!
