Hello Fellow Gallopers,
From the Royal Engineers launching balloons in the Tentsmuir Forest in 1911 to Typhoons operating from RAF Leuchars in 2011, North East Fife has played a crucial role in ensuring the integrity of UK’s airspace. Hence it was apt that this year’s airshow at RAF Leuchars be a centenary celebration marking 100 years of military aviation in North East Fife.
Starting with this entry, I will be running a Photo Feature series showcasing the various planes that formed part of the flying display at RAF Leuchars this year.
So let’s start the show by filling the grey Fife skies with the patriotic colours of France. I present to you one of the oldest aerobatic demonstration teams in the world. Sit back and enjoy the Patrouille Acrobatique de France (also known as Patrouille de France), the precision aerobatic demonstration team of the French Air Force, perform their visual magic right before your eyes.
And trust me, you really want to click the link below to see all the images in this set:
Hope you can join us next time when we will turn our focus to the aerobatic team of the Royal Air Force – the Red Arrows.
Till then, take care and gallop free.
