ILA Berlin Air Show, Schonefeld Airport

The Internationale Luft- und Raumfahrtausstellung is held every two years, and claims to be the world's oldest airshow, dating back to 1909. The facilities are impressive and the organisation excellent, but the flightline faces south, so for most of the day photographers are shooting into the sun. The contribution by the German armed forces was very impressive.
