Filton Airshow 2001

Sun Jun 24, 2001 1:25 am

Hey all

Today was the Filton Airshow, at Filton in Bristol.

Lots of interesting stuff around, nearly 40'000 people turned up.

The A340-600 made an appearance, and it is such a beautiful Aircraft! Also there was the A300-600ST Beluga, B17, Bristol Blenheim, Extra 300's, etc etc.

Very hot, and not much wind made an excellent show.

Also there was The Orange F1 Racing team, and some guy with a very strong neck!

Luckily there were no accidents  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Rgrds, Dan

While looking at one of the Airbus exhibits i noticed a familiar photo.

It was this taken by Mark Garfinkel!

Well done, i hope that they asked permission to use it  Smile

>Yes, they never contacted me.

I feared that. Shame over them!
Maybe you should contact a lawyer, first.
