Global Aviation Resource’s Karl Drage is currently at the Bahrain International Airshow and sent us these two images.
Running from the 16 – 18 January and in association with Farnborough International, the Bahrain International Airshow this year comprises of a five hour flying programme featuring modern military participants, aerobatics, historic aircraft and display teams.
Our very own Karl Drage is at the show, with the Huawei Twister Duo, and sent back these images. The first was taken from a mounted camera during a flight over the region yesterday morning, with Pete Wells’ and Guy Westgate’s Silence Twisters being joined by Mark Jefferies, who was flying his Extra as the photo-ship, with Karl on-board.
This second image was also taken yesterday, during a practise display flown by the spectacular Russian Knights.
As Karl said, “They flew at just the right time of day!” Didn’t they just…..
