Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Nice ones Pim. Since you visited the media day, did you hear if they expect the race to go ahead? The weather forecast ain't exactly pretty with heavy winds and thunder... :(

Sorry guys, didn't see the other topic. Maybe the moderators can merge them?

As far as I know, the race is still expected to go ahead.

I wasn't aware of this, but apparently you have to buy a ticket of EUR 15 to actually see the race. They've put fences all around the river as a safety measure. Also, the planes will not fly under the Erasmusbridge like they did a couple of years ago.
