2019 Sanicole Airshow was awesome

Sanicole Airshow

Hechtel-Eksel, Belgium was the place where the 2019 Sanicole Airshow did take place this year. I did tell something about it in the previous post of September 30 this year and in my Events.

Ok, another whole month with aviation stuff in November.
Sanicole Airshow only this time.

Awesomeness

What a beautiful day it was.
Sun high in the sky, good ambience, my girlfriend beside me, we had our food and drinks and an amazing show.

This time the B-17 Sally B was there as well.
Due to technical problems, she was not able to visit the Wings of Freedom air show which we’d visit on August 24 this year.

Also a guest I only did see on the television.
An amazing USAF, CV-22 Osprey……

This day, for me, was total awesomeness for sure.

What’s next?

I still have real plans made yet.
All the pictures of this 2019 Sanicole Airshow still need be finalized.

The Sanicole Airshow, for next year, is on the list though!

In the previous post I mentioned, I was thinking about doing some experiments with self-made tools to get some creative photo’s.
I also mentioned my FX-35mm F2 R WR lens for B&W but in the meantime, I have my Fuji XT30 back, which I used for B&W before.

And digitalizing my analogue pictures is still ready to start. Only the weather is still too good for this.

I don’t know yet what I will do. Just hang in there, wait and see ūüėČ

Anything else?

I still need to upload some new photo’s to the albums and portfolio. I hope to do this in the next couple of weeks.

You can also follow me on social media as I have already and will post pictures on a daily base.

In case something new comes up I’ll let you know with an update post.

Have a nice day!!

The APROC 2018 Album is live.

In the post, of 2018/06/09, I mentioned that 2018 was the year that the Royal Netherlands Air Force hosted the exercise APROC 2018.

I needed quite some time to get the pictures sorted out and accordingly published on my site. Finally, it’s here. However, there are more photos which I’ll add later to the APROC 2018 Album.

A military show or exercise like the APROC is a little different than an airshow like the Airshow by LeaseWeb Texel.

Different countries, several types of helicopters. An amazing organisation at work to get this done.
This was the real hardcore stuff.

What’s next?

I had another shoot with lovely puppies last week. I’ll post an album of these little creatures soon accordingly.

With regard to planes and helicopters, the next journey is already planned.¬† The Belgian Air Force¬†Day. Next Saturday I’ll be heading for Belgium.

Keep an eye on my portfolio

Anything else?

Yes, I’ll upload some new photo’s to the albums and portfolio in the next couple of weeks. When I find the time

Frisian Flag 2018, Large Scale Military Exercise.

From Sunday 8 April to Friday 20 April, Leeuwarden Air Base hosted the large-scale international exercise Frisian Flag 2018.

I had the opportunity to visit this major event in the north of our beautiful country on April 16th. An early start that morning and on my way to the spotter’s hill close to runway 05.
After parking my car it didn’t take long before the first wave took off.

Except for the Polish MIG-29 Fulcrum’s (2x) all countries took off, returning within an hour and a half.
After all, planes were back and safely landed we had a break for about an hour or so before the second wave started.

Well, at the end of the day the total clicks of my camera were up with a bit more than 3200 photos taken. (o my god… )
Anyway, I had a great day and it felt good to be back close to the base again.

For a first impression of the photos, have a look at my Portfolio under Aviation_Military.
I’ll add more soon after I have sorted them all… (which is still a lot)

Enjoy!!
