UK warbirds July 8 & 9

Our popular warbird days return, and will be flown once again from the airfield of Sywell. One day will be focused on the line-up build by Darren Harbar with some of the very rare Shuttleworth Collection aircraft. The other day will feature the line-up Richard Paver is putting together. Each day will feature at least 7 aircraft and 3 flights, so we can rotate the photographers in different positions. Weather depending, we hope to offer a sunsetflight in both programs as well. All warbirds will be ‘new’ for us and have not been photographed in Aviation PhotoCrew projects before!

For the smaller budgets we offer ‘an afternoon with 2 classic warbirds’ as well.

The fantastic coastal region and of course the mountains, with Mount Baker in the US as their own ‘Mount Fuji’ window view. Just outside of Vancouver you have the city of Abbotsford, among aviation enthousiasts well known for being the host city of one of the longlasting and worldfamous Canadian airshows: the Abbotsford International Airshow. It is with great pleasure we can announce that this will be the first big photoflying project for the Aviation PhotoCrew in Canada. It will be a ‘full’ project, and yes we will operate the Skyvan as a photoship, so you know what to expect from us. The line-up of airshow participants is one of the best in North America, a great mix of civilian, military and warbirds not to forget the local stars the aviation community has to offer.

You are invited to join us! And since this is our introduction year in Canadian and US airshows, the pricing is very véry interesting ?? If you are unlucky to secure a seat now, you can already have your name on the list for the big 100th CAF anniversary show in 2024!

2024 Plans

 

Danish Air Force airshow June

The Danish Air Force is hosting a bi-annual event, each time on one of their prime airbases. This time it will be the F-16 base Skydstrup welcoming foreign airshow participants from all over Europe…and beyond! But they got something big to celebrate themselves, as normally the first Danish F-35s will have arrived by that time! It is the biggest open air event in Denmark, and the show has the ambition to become the biggest airshow in Scandinavia. With previous editions in mind, they are very much on that track!! We expect to welcome a fantastic variety of both military and civilian subjects to join the Skyvan photoship, just check out our webreports to see what they all had in the past.

We will offer a 1-day project ( prior to the airshow arrivals ) with the F-16s, and hopefully they will be joined by the F-35.

We offer an ‘all arrivals’ = all days, all flights program. As well as a day by day seat opportunity.

Swedish classic jets June

In 2018 we had one of our absolute magical days so far, when we were lucky enough to fly with the amazing collection of vintage jets that are still flying in Sweden today. Supported by Saab, the Swedish Air Force Historic Flight manages to keep their jet legacy airworthy, each of their jets is an icon!! Tunnan, Lansen, Draken, Viggen…they have it all, and they look unbelievable from an air to air perspective. If the date for the Danish Air Force airshow ( TBD ) is as expected, we will be able to fly the Skyvan photoship to Sweden again to meet all of these legends in person!

We will offer a 1-day project ‘all flights’ to meet the Swedish jets up close.

Fly, land, refuel, restroom, repeat….for 2,5 days from morning till dinnertime! RIAT does not need an introduction, as this legendary event has been the biggest military airshow in the world for decades. And the many photoflights are a bit like that too, you better bring fully loaded cameras and BIG memory cards. If you are chasing an abundance of military join-up opportunities, look no further! Ooh, and we do like the 2024 themes soo much!!! Yes, that is still a surprise.

Your challenge is to secure a seat, as this project is very high in demand. If you are unlucky for this year, you can have your name already on the list for the next 4 years.

Airpower September

Which airshow in Europe has the most beautiful backdrops? And the most amazing line-up? And the Skyvan photoship ready to catch all that precious metal?
Yes, you are absolutely correct, the Austrian mountains will be once again the scenery for spectacular air to air photos. By many airshow fanatics, this airshow in Austria is regarded as their favourite show in Europe. Not only because it is a HUGE airshow, but also for the always surprising line-up that makes it this world class event. And our many photomissions we fly during this week are a perfect reflection of that. Airpower has it all, every time: jets, teams, warbirds, civilian & aerobatic, helicopters…and the very unusual. If the weather is with us, we even have a sunsetflight!

We offer 2 programs, an ‘all arrivals’ = all days, all flights program. As well as a day by day seat opportunity.

The second program is flown for the departures, on Sunday & Monday .

Athens Flying Week September

If you are that die-hard air to air photographer and you don’t have a ‘unicorn’ aircraft in your collection yet, as the Mirage 2000 or F-4 Phantom, this could be the rare occasion that we can make that happen for you. We never guarantee, but just have a look at our webreports to see all the gems that are still flying in the Hellenic military. Most of these iconic but very endangered species are super hard to catch, but through the years – and with the great help of our friends at Athens Flying Week – we performed more miracles than we can count. And we love to do it again!

We offer ‘all arrivals’ = all days, all flights program, as well as a 2-day project for the departures.
