Al Ain Aerobatic Show 2011 Series: Wasp, Baltic Bees, and the Skycats

Continuing yesterday's post about the Al Ain Aerobatic Show. Today, let me share some of the photos that I snapped last Saturday over the next 45 minutes after we sat on the bleachers.

Let me start with Wasp from Scandinavia. This aircraft made some awesome aerobatic show with lots of loops, inverted flying and smoke. At first, I thought the smoke were contrails created by the aircraft but I was wrong. This flying winged was really capable to creating smoke just like the other aircrafts.

Baltic Bees Jet Team is from Latvia and they were flying at the speed of 570 miles per hour. Their performance was quite breath taking considering that the team was created just two years ago. I really liked the yellow and blue colors of these twin-shaft jets as well the bee-inspired design.

These Skycats delighted everyone especially the children with its playful act. They were not just playful and beautiful, they were also friendly that even most of the photographers asked them to pose for a shot and still they were so accommodating. By the way, they were part of the Scandinavian Team.

Did you notice that they have something in common? Have a look the Arabic word of the day to check out what I have noticed on that day.

  3. It is always great to go to an airshow. The pictures are very sharp. It must be difficulty to produce this quality.
