More photos from the Coup Icare, World Air Sports Competition, Savoie, France

Here are more photos of the Coup Icare World Air Sports Competition in Savoie, France which occurs every September. These were wild bird shows and a Hot Air Balloon display. Notice on the first photo (click it to make it bigger) the eagle flying next to the parasailer. It's his pet eagle who flies with him.

Coup Icare: World Air Sports Competition in Savoie France

Every year in September the town of St. Hilaire du Touvet, just outside of Grenoble and Chambery, has a world competition of air sports. From balloons, airplane acrobats, eagle and owl educational shows, and costumed hang gliders - you can find it all. Unfortunately, this year the weather was bad so we didn't see as much as we would have liked nor was it good for photos. But the event is amazing - especially the hang gliders.
