Photoshooting Red Bull Air Race on Duoro river -  Porto / Portugal

The spectacular show in the land of internationally famous port wine was very exciting in front of 600,000 people. Martin Sonka flew the perfect round to take his second win of the season and his place at the top of the World Championship standings. I had a great time in the helicopter over Duoro river with awesome view on the global city Porto.

Porto (also known as Oporto in English) is the coastal second-largest city in Portugal after Lisbon located in northwest Portugal. It is known for its stately bridges and port wine production. In the medieval Ribeira (riverside) district, narrow cobbled streets wind past merchants’ houses and cafes.
