188 003For 188 004the afternoon a fly-by of 4xF-2 and 4xF-15 was planned, but had to be cancelled due to the events in the morning. The photos you can see here have been taken on the Saturday during the rehearsal for the airshow.

188 002As already shown Blue Impuls therefore performed a bit earlier, but as the sky was really dark it was time for me to leave early and look for good position for the fly-out of the visitors, which was rewarded with some nice shots of the Hyakuri-based RF-4E and F-4EJ Phantoms.

Though the weather has not been very good once again, Tsuiki has been a nice event again also because of the well-known faces that I met there again. With sunshine this show must offer unlimited photo possibilities. Maybe at another day for me...

When? 14 July 2018

Flying displays at the Shuttleworth Collection are classic events. This is even more valid for their evening displays that usually provide a well balanced selection of the Collection’s extensive collection presented in the last hours of sunlight.

Apart from that once again more than 10.000 aircraft flew to Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, making it at that time the busiest airport in the world with approximately 123 aircraft movements per hour. For the pilots it was once again the great fly-in, and the highlight for the airshow this year were the US Navy Blue Angels.
