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,


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. )

  1. Great shots!…I am sitting here with the heater and my jumper on!


  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.
