All of these pictures were shot at the Paris Airshow 1997 during
the 21st and 22nd of june in France by Tom A.H. Piel (thats me that is)
with kind regards to all the people who made this excellent airshow.
All pictures are scanned in 30 bit colours at 300 dpi.
All were saved in a jpeg format in a resolution of 800 by 5xx pixels.
Warning, these are pictures with sizes up to 100 K, it might take a while
to load. The weather wasn't too bad but still very cloudy.
Getting in was a real problem though. The security was very thight,
which is understandable. But just one place to get in for ticketholders
was a damnright shame. If you've paid for your ticket you should not
be kept waiting for one and a halve hour! Right? And unfortunatly no B2
and no YF-22, which was a real shame. Still, I've got some great photos.
And the weather wasn't to bad, except for the occasional shower.
Just click on the photos to see the full scale image.
