red bull air race 2007, interlaken
here some very very amateur pictures i shot yesterday at the red bull air race in interlaken.
The show was effing awesome. It makes me really wanna learn to fly :) But let’s be objective… the youngest pilot was 37 yrs old, all of them are professionnal pilots with tons of flight hours. The french pilot, Nicolas Ivanoff, had a special plane, with a different wing shape giving more uplift. You could really see how the plane flew differently through the track… Then there was the incredible show pulled off by the Breiling jet team. Just another bunch of crazy bastards :D… Finally, as I was heading back to the train station, there was a heli demo. I think this was the greatest of all. It surely isn’t as fast as those little planes, but it looks a lot more radical. He did loopings and all; it seemed kinda out of control sometimes, but I’m pretty sure it was intentional.
