Great photos! What's the bright yellow plane in photo 02? It looks like a flying boat, but not one I recognize...

Thanks! Very neat looking. I'm partial to the Catalina, but the Bombardier looks very cool.

What's the 2-seat fighter in the last few shots? Pic #24, it's mainly blue with "1" on the red rudder.

Edit: also what's the wide body "SAR", 4-bladed turbo-prop in #16? Edit2: registration number shows its a CASA 235.

Yes it is...It is used in Spain in the fire extinction. In fact, there is a Bombardier base near my home and I am used to see them flying over my roof...

Pic #24 > It is a Dassault/Dornier Alpha Jet...It is the plane de Aerobatic French Squadron use for air demonstrations.

Pic #16 > CASA (that stands for Construcciones Aeronaticas Sociedad Anomima) is an spanish airplane maker...the spanish air forces use a lot of his models.

I am glad you like my pics!

My favorite is # 20 as it captured a fleeting movement in time that cannot be duplicated. OK, I also love the Bombardier. Heck I love them all, lol. Thanks for sharing celicanegrita .

I liked them so much I had to come back today for another look and I have 2 more questions...

In pic8 of the C15-34, what is the green "bomb" attached to the right under-wing hardpoint?

Then in pic 17,looks like some CAS type aircraft, what is it? (can you tell I really like the straight wing planes?)
I think that's my favorite picture, it reminds me of an older picture, like from the mid 80's when I was a kid and my dad took me to air shows. Dont know why it reminds me of that but really brings back some nostalgia!

Thank you for sharing your pictures with us!

I remember the Alpha Jet, it was also popular in the german army as a "trainer". The spanish airforce seems like to have alot of different aircrafts. F16. F18, Harrier, EF2000.

I do not know what type the green bomb is...it looks like a fragmentation bomb like used to disable runways on enemy airfields.

I just took the pics...RedSneakers made all the work to share with you; thanks RS!

Yes, we got the F16, F18, Harrier (aka "Matador"), Typhoon (Eurofighter EF2000) and the CASA C101 (reactor fix-wing trainer). The C101 is it used by the "Patrulla Aguila"...the aerobatic spanish air force patrol. You can see this plane on pics #23, 25, 26 and 27.

Airshow Photos Wanted

Hey, I love airshows, full scale or RC. It helps us expand our knowledge of how far we have progressed in the field of aeronautics. So if anyone has a set of original airshow photos, I am more than willing to publish them, add a watermark if requested, edit them to meet the rule-of-thirds, resize them, and make other enhancements to present them in the best light. Just PM me so we can agree on the logistics.
