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...
