Sky Watch Friday - The old and the new

The Dakota C47 TP being taken through her paces at the 2008 airshow. She may be an old bird, but with the new turbo props she has many flying hour left.



The Silver Falcons aerobatic team, of the SA Airforce in the Swiss made Pilatus PC7 MkII put on an excellent display of precision flying.



For more great pictures visit our hosts at the Sky Watch site.

Super Sky Watch, Max! I live not far from a US Air Force Base and get to see all sorts of planes regularly. It's still thrilling to see something so heavy held up by 'thin air.'
