RAF Mildenhall Air Fete 97

Saturday 24th May 1997

What an astounding show this was. One of the best airshows I have ever been to! The USAF flew provided some excellent displays, including a B-2A and a rare appearance by the Thunderbirds. The foreign participation was brilliant too, with top displays from the Swedish Viggen and French Mirage 2000 in particular.

The only problem with the Air Fete is that the crowdline is North of the display axis meaning that photography is always into the sun. Below is a selection of my shots taken on the Saturday. These images are "thumbnail" images. Click on those of interest to see them full size (approximately 800 x 520 pixels/30kB), complete with description.
