A hot and sticky Kecskemet Air Show 2013

Hungarion version

This year’s Kecskemet Air Show, took place on a weekend of searing heat that presented special challenges not just for the baking spectators but also for the photographers lugging around heavy equipment in temperatures of 37 degrees and above. It can’t have been easy for the pilots either although one suspects in the air they probably felt a little cooler than the sweating masses on the ground below.
