Less than a week to go until the start of the Leuchars Air Show, it’s amazing how time flies and I realise I have hardly taken any photographs, but the ones I have taken are in this post.
The dreich weather has meant all sorts of unexpected visitors and a record month for Kirkwall Airport with over 19000 passengers through KOI in July.
Anyway the first picture is a new aircraft in my library, I had never seen a Voyager before and it was worth the wait.
And the inside
At the same time a BE200 was diverted prior to leaving for Iceland
We rarely see the Royal Air Force at KOI anymore but we have had a couple of aircraft from other Air Forces. First a Twin Otter from France
And a Citation from the Swiss Air Force
Finally a couple of different helicopters, a nearly new S92 and an S76
I was very sad when I heard the news regarding the recent accident in Sumburgh. My sincere condolences go out to the families who lost a loved one.
Finally, to Leuchars, where the entries listed look like making a tremendous event. If you have not seen the link click here www.airshow.co.uk .
There will be a number of first for me and I am looking forward to taking my usual ridiculous number of photos in the hope that one or two are special.
As always I will post them up when I return so, as always, thanks for taking the time to read.
All the best
