Radom Airshow 2017 - Flankers, Fulcrums and Fitters

Together with my friend Robert I went on a trip to the Radom Airshow with 4Aviation. It was our first experience with this aviation travel agency and one to remember!!!! Not only did we have lots of laughs, we also had an excellent organised trip.

Highlight was the basevisit at Minsk Mazowiecki air base, normally this is the homebase of the mighty MiG-29, but because of the Polish Air Force Parade during the show, the base also hosted 6 Su-22 Fitters. Thanks to our host Andrzej we were positioned at the perfect spots during pre-flight checks, take off and arrivals. What a day that was!

During the Radom show itself our tour guide advised to spend the day outside the fence due to the back-light conditions on base. We found a spot in a parking lot where we spend the day between the barbecueing Polish. The show went into the late afternoon providing us with some nice light conditions in the end.
