A couple of weekends ago, we went to the Lismore Air Show. There were some fabulous planes on exhibition but the flying was spectacular.
I don’t know all the planes so here is just a few of the photos I took plus a video of the crazy blokes flying stunt planes.
The crowd was quite big and it was an unseasonably hot day. Being on the tarmac and the exhibits being in metal hangers didn’t help either.
Some planes were much much bigger than others
AQ propeller shot and a stunted selfie.
The nose of this plane was a bit off the ground.
“OK….now I push this button, watch the gauge, flick a toggle switch, watch the other gauge, move the joy stick, watch the gauge, talk on the radio, watch another gauge and shit….what’s that warning for, read the warning, watch the gauge, push a button….see I told you flying was easy”
Even the commercial flights tried to get among the action.
So did the birds. A Black Kite thought it was just as fast.
They flew all around the airport and surrounding district.
Those wheel look rather small to me
I think this pilot preferred flying upside down
Some planes didn’t get off the ground
Although some pilots looked like they were going fast.
Flying in a straight line is easy
I hope that wasn’t an essential part of his plane.
I wondered why two planes took off together
It became clear. See the small yellow dot in the last spiral?
That small yellow dot was a person.
Imagine parachuting with a crazy bloke in a plane circling you
He also liked to get up close to the crowd. I hope the people from the house on the hill like planes
When we were going home, this tiny plane was flying around.
Back at my besties place, later in the afternoon, the RAAF did a bit of a fly over the Air Show site and turned around overhead to fly back again.
Here is my video of the stunt planes
Thanks for visiting the Air Show with me.
