Re: SPOTTER CONTEST

A non-spotting photographer can send in pictures and win, a non-photographing spotter cannot win. Ergo, it is a contest for photographers, not for spotters. Erwin But in order to take a photo you have to spot the plane. Ergo, it is a spotter's contest. :roll: :bday: :multi: :drinking: :snipersmile:...

In France, we don't have so many people only collecting serials. Most of them take pictures and are called spotters.
Now if you want to come back to the origins of the name to make a contest, we need to make a new world war :wink:

ELINT Transall today

:shock:
Shot today at noon, this scarce C-160 Transall "Gabriel" (ELINT), over Sarrebourg (France). They were based in Metz in the past, but they are pretty rare now... :D

Tigre BJA was already present on Sunday, so possibly the NH90 was a local flyer like the Tigre as well.
There is no "local" Tigre and NH-90.
Both are coming from the GAMSTAT of Valence, South of Lyon.
