The Hoppings~June 2017~part 3

Part 1 HERE.  Part 2 HERE.

Eventually, after a horrid lunch of side stall burger and fries (the majority of which ended up in a bin) we got to the area where the military show was.  Lots of side shows of equipment,

medivac demos,

helicopters,

climbing walls

recruiting booths and a fenced of arena for the ‘shows’.

First off we had a parachute display

They all landed so easy, like a walk in the park

After this, we had a police dog show, but that’s another post, so stay tooned 🙂

(as an aside… it was 30 degrees 2 weeks ago at the end of June, when I took these, and its now 13 degrees and has rained solid for 2 days. Totally Bonkers. )

  2. We had 26 hours of torrential rain, and only 16 degrees today. It felt like November.
    The aerial shots were first-class, FR. Nicely done indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. I was wondering what they were going to write in the smoke trails 🙂 I see Pete has infected you with the weather reporting! I’m happy to report its still 30c here, but we are getting daily storms, I just wish I was quick enough to take a picture as the clouds illuminate with lightening in the distance, very cool.
