The Leuchars Air Show is upon us

Hello

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

Neil 😉
