Here are some somewhat smoky shots to enjoy:

Every time each engine on the Temora Canberra...

is started, one of these is fired off - at a cost of $600.

 

So before it even gets to consume its JetA1 (and who'd want to foot that bill?) a cool $1200 bucks has been blown.

 

It might pay to keep that in mind when we have to fork out a few dollars to go through the airshow gate, don't you think?

Aargh, rub it in - I hovered around for ages at Amberley waiting to get a shot of the Canberra start, only to miss #1 and watch the smoke from #2 dissipate into a haze in the wind :mad:

 

Having been involved in putting on a couple of airshows, I'll second the comment re "a few dollars", it's an expensive exercise and fraught with risks, the weather for one - geez I used to think aerobatic aircraft burnt diesel to make smoke, that stuff must have gold leaf suspended in it!
