Recommended Posts

Our reconnaissance squad visited the ILA 2006 airshow in Berlin, May 2006. This article includes photos from the air show, especially covering the beautiful Messerschmitts, with photos also from Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin and Luftwaffenmuseum Gatow.


Photos from the annual Midnight Sun Airshow at Kauhava Air Force Base, Finland. The history of the Midnight Sun Airshow started 1945 when Finnish Air Force Training Air Wing’s (Lentosotakoulu) personnel organized first midsummer airshow, which gathered 6267 spectators. Training Air Wing’s instructors performed formation flying and all major Finnish Air Force types were flown, the tradition was born. This year there were visitors from Dutch Air Force, Polish Air Force and Royal Air Force, among others.

Those are some lovely shots :thumbsup:

Question, tho...why isn't the prop spinning on that biplane? Either you have a camera with an uber fast shutter speed or the pilot is performing a dead stick landing :unsure:
