Shepway Air Show - June 2nd 2012

After 9 years the Shepway Air Show returned to the skies over Folkestone and Hythe Bay.  It was shelved for financial reasons.  As a free air show the costs had simply got too much for the local council to pay for.

This year it came back as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

I don't have a long lens for my venerable old Canon, but Claire has a 70-300mm zoom for her Sony.  In the end we shared photo duties and she took the Red Arrows and I took the others.

I have to say I was underwhelmed with some of the smaller boring aircraft, but the RAF and Naval aircraft were so fantastic. 

Great to see the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and of course, the Typhoon.

My best are here.  I tried to be a little arty with the cropping rather than a plane in the middle of the shot!!!

Great shots. I like the creativity in framing the shots and that you labelled the them. I wouldn't have been able to identify them otherwise.

Thanks. I tried to frame some of the shots a little differently.
