We obviously do not have a patch on the USAF, being a 3rd world country, but there are neverless some interesting old birds flying around.
The problem is obviously budget related, we only have one or two military airshows a year and you see the same few aircraft over and over.
In 1995 and then again in 2000 there were quite a contingent of international planes demonstrating at Aerospace Africa, F15, F16, B1 Bone, U2 (NASA), Red Arrows, Tornados, Grippen, Sukhoi 27 and Mig 29 to name the key ones.
Unfortunately it was still the days of film for me which now in hindsight was a major limiting factor. With digital you are not restricted to 5 or 10 spools because of budget constraints, you can shoot and you have to take a lot in this kind of work.
As you can gather I am very passionate about aircraft and would give my left ball to be able to get close to and photograph the great planes which you see often.
I think I will post some of my aircraft images on Airliners.net sometime, I am trying to only post the more "artistic" images here. Will send you a link when I do, but I must caution, my stuff is not that hot. Our crowd lines are always far away from the runway, our light can be very harsh and then my tele lens is limited to 420mm effective (with 1.4 converter) only.
