When? 26-27/05/2007

The anticipation for this year's trip to the 35ième Fête Aérienne (35th airshow) at La Ferté-Alais was once again very dependent on the weather gods. Whereas the planned line-up for the show was once again excellent and well mixed, the forecasts were very variable depending on the source. But I didn't care about that anyway as everything was fixed well in advance and the participants lists was even more exciting.

RIAT… Fairford... THE military air show well known among air show enthusiasts. No wonder as it is the biggest event worldwide of this kind.

But this year I finally decided to attend the biggest (and best?) military air show on the globe to get my own opinion, and experience the flair of being there.
