Nice pictures Systemlord.

The title of the thread jogged my memory... anyone else on here old enough to remember the tragedy at the Rammstein Air Show back in 1988? It was a collision with the Italian stunt team if my aging memory serves me right. Ever since then I am relieved whenever I hear of one of these things going off without a hitch.

And thats the reason, why the Patrouille Suisse has to change their program. Since Ramstein the regulations for Air Shows in Germany are very strikt.
I've also made some vids of the flying display. If i have time I will edit them and put them online.

The European ones always seem to have better stuff than the stateside shows. I get a little tired of seeing the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds year after year... after year...

This looks to be one impressive piece of hardware...

It's quite interesting to see the UCAV Barracuda 99 80 that made its first maiden flight in Spain, being publicly displayed. Although I didn't expect them to do so this early.
