A hot and sticky Kecskemet Air Show 2013

JAS-39 Gripen of the Hungarian Airforce performs during the International Air Show at the Hungarian Air Force base in Kecskemet (about 87 km South-East of the capital city Budapest), Hungary on August 03, 2013.

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.
