I took a week of vacation and volunteered to help with the preparations for the show, and for tasks during the weekend. There is a tremendous amount of work involved, and both paid staff and volunteers put in very long hours in the weeks before, but especially the last few days. They are a tremendously dedicated and fun bunch of people. When I had time I took some photos of what went on during the days before the show.The practice day on Friday is also fun if you get a chance to attend. One of the tasks involved babysitting the media and helping them get to where they needed to be for photos on the ground and in the air. I was fortunate enough to get a ride in the Lancaster, to watch the professional photographers work.
The Hamilton Airshow is back! Here are a few of my images, thought I'd start a thread for anyone else who attended to post theirs. Apparently if you click on the image you can enlarge them.
