Blast from the past

With Koksijde Fly-in this weekend I thought it might be a good idea to go through some old pictures from the airshow that was held there annually, until a few years ago. I only seem to have these from the 2003 airshow as after that most of the pictures were made with a digital camera. Those files must be somewhere on a harddrive, but even if I could find them they wouldn’t have this ‘old’ look. And after all they would’nt be that old at all!

During my search I did come across some older pictures from the airshow at Oostende. I don’t know the exact year, but looking at the age of my brother I guess it must have been in 1994 or 1995? All I remember is buying a poster at a stand while a formation team passed over. This is actually all I can remember of the airshows at Ostend that we visited. The airshow came to a devastating end when a plane crashed into the crowd in 1997. Luckily we decided not to go that day…

The pictures from Koksijde I do remember vividly. What strikes me most while watching them is how many types of planes have disappeared in the past decade…
