François Ponsot

By biglog
This was another shot taken at RIAT Fairford 2014. This is Francois Ponsot, nickname Ponpon in his L-39 Albatros flying with the Breitling Jet Team. The largest professional civilian team performing on jets.

A Mirage F1 and Mirage 2000 fighter pilot as well as a Mirage 2000 flight presenter at international air shows, “Ponpon” has nonetheless remained passionately dedicated to vintage aviation. He devotes most of his leisure time to flying and restoring legendery planes (Stampe, T6, Zlin and other warbirds). “Ponpon” has 6,700 flight hours to his credit.

Thanks for looking,

Thanks for the comments Terry, Willie and Paul..

Thanks for the mod Willie,it seems my camera was stuck on negative compensation for the entire day!!. Looking back at the images they all have it. The mod is more realistic to what I was seeing in terms of light and colours.
