Hey guys,

Here's a few of the 500 or so pics I took last weekend at the air show in PEI. The static display was very very light on US aircraft (one Niagara ANG C-130) but the rest was so good I really didn't mind. And this is coming from a guy who prefers the ground display over the air portion of the show most times. The location, weather, pacing of the show, parking, washrooms, etc etc were all great in my opinion. Plus I got to put the new camera through its paces finally!:


USAF C-130 tail, the Falls (and the Canadian Falls at that :D was a neat touch):


Show bird. I actually got close enough to shoot this, the planes for the display were all placed right in front of the crowd, a few dozen feet away! Awesome paint scheme. I also uploaded the wrong shot to Image Shack, it's missing part of the Sidewinder rail:


Aerobatic display:


Harvard in the vertical:


This guy had a ride in the back of this CF-18. Apparently there's video on the net of the ride but I haven't found it:


Canadian C-130:


F-86 with the 'A/C' on:


Hornet turn:


Lucky sucker came back for a pass before the landing:


Skyhawks:


Cormorant with some manual setting rotor blur:


And again with the Herc in the bacground during the SAR display:


It was all vapes, all the time! Even the Heritage Flight had it streaming from the wingtips of the CF-18 that was tooling along beside the P-51. Passes like this had lots of vapour:


Knife edge pass:


In burner after the dirty pass with gear, hook and IFR probe extended:


Smokin!:



I think this is my favourite shot. The full sized one is crazy. There's vapour everywhere! The lightning fast focus of the cam was the only reason I captured this one, it was a surprise pass from behind the crowd.

I had been planning on making the trek out there this year, but my plans fell apart at the last moment.
Glad to see it was such a beautiful weekend! Hope there are more pics coming of the ground displays... :wink:

It was great Chris. I have a few of the static display but there wasn't much. The Blue Angels 2012 schedule is out on their site and lists Summerside as a stop, FYI :D

These pix were great - but let's not forget about the other side of the coin - the frequencies and any trunked system activity???.

Once these are captured in our wiki, they can be had for next year. At least some of the freqs are likely to be reused next year...best regards..Mike

Good point Mike, unfortunately I used the DB here to help set up my PEI stuff. I can confirm it worked though at least!
