Airshow Kristiansand 2012

On the 12th of May 2012, the Norwegian Airforce put on a spectacular airshow (called Bernt Balchen Airshow) in Kristiansand to an audience of 10,000 plus people. The weather was perfect and the atmosphere was electric. I was lucky enough to get a front row seat enabling me to take some amazing pictures. There were spitfires, f16s an old Dakota DC3, Soviet fighter planes, American fighter planes, helicopters, skydivers. You name it, they had it. Here are some pictures from that day. Enjoy!

Not sure what this one is...(it is a smaller version of the Hercules) think it is a surveillance aircraft

Beautiful old DC 3 Dakota. 20 parachutists jumped from this during the show. I put my name on the list but they didnt pick me :(

The pilot of this f16 was amazing. It was the show stopper!
