Awful Pictures of Awesome Aerobatics

Bonjour, IFC, comment allez vous?

Today, I suis allé to a local aérodrome to practice my photography (which i often do but don’t post here).

I arrived in a small field in the middle of nowhere near la Ferté Alais (nowhere).

I saw a young pilot fueling up a magnificent Pitt’s aircraft, and decided to take some pictures. He smiled at me while he was starting up his plane and told me to stay and look up.

He did some aerobatics. I have no idea who that guy was but he was kind and definitely knew how to fly.

As I was alone at the airfield watching his flights, I can confidently say I had a private airshow.

Nice

Picture time!

Sorry for the low quality pictures, these were taken with the practice camera and are not up to my usual standard as I did not expect to see an airshow like that.


Doing some run ups after fueling up



Ligning up with the runway




Doing some fancy shmancy aerobatics


Landing…



Topping off after the flight while watching the French Air Force doing some fancy stuff with its helis


Being cleaned up at the ramp

Last but not least, enjoying a nice warm sunset and drying in the sun

Hope you liked these shots!

Should I make a topic for the pictures of the military helicopters in formation?
