June 24th-25th 2005, Zeltweg, Austria

Samsung Digimax V4 Photographs presented were taken with Samsung Digimax V4 digital camera, originally taken in 2272 x 1704 resolution and downsampled for the web site to 1280 x 960. Most images were digitally adjusted for optimal color and contrast to compensate for exposure errors.

The last third of the program air show is not on photos for a simple reason, camera batteries died on me including reserve ones. I just kicked back and enjoyed the show.
