Here are some pictures I took at the Military Aviation Musuem’s Biplanes and Triplanes 2016 Airshow.  Some were taken on Friday’s practice day and the rest at Saturday’s full event.

 

We were lucky the weather cooperated on both days.

All the aircraft in the pictures are full scale, but I really need to measure the Halberstadt to make sure on that one.
