RNAS Yeovilton Airshow Photo Evening

Friday 12th July 1996

The organisers at Yeovilton really understand aviation enthusiasts - they open the gates on the Friday before the airshow to allow ticket holders onto the airfield to photograph the arrivals. There is also a ticket-only photo evening allowing access to the static park and flightlines without having to contend with the masses present on the airshow day itself. This year's show was enhanced greatly by a strong US Navy presence from the USS John F. Kennedy. Earlier in the week it had been reported that little or no visitors were to be expected, but fog in the vicinity of the carrier on the Thursday morning resulted in a number of aircraft to divert to Yeovilton. Thankfully they were persuaded to stay. The pictures below are "thumbnail" images. Click on those of interest to see them full size.
