A couple of pics from the Paris Air Show Fri 23 June

The F-35 display was one of the best I've seen. I haven't processed the movie from my camera yet but you can see the display on many places on the web including here:

I've heard a lot of good about the F35 display at Paris. Looking forward to seeing one fly myself as I have only walked around one a while ago. Great pics!

Thank you.

The F-35 has had a lot of bad publicity which I think will now be dispelled. Its square loop and low speed manoeuvring were just breathtaking, even to an old-timer like me.

Thank you, AT. The weather was too hot for comfort really, 25!
