The static display was split up in three parts. The first part was a small exhibition of Russian SAM-missiles, followed by the bigger planes.
A Yak-42 and a Tu-154 of the Slovak Republic, followed by the Ukrainian deployment: an Il-76 and the famous Tu-22, still wearing the RIAT sticker from some years ago. All these planes were parked far enough away one from the other, so that decent shots were possible.
The third part were the small transport aircraft, helicopters and jets: the Slovak parade which included an An-26, L-410, Mi-2, Mi-8, Mi-24, L-159, MiG-21 and a MiG-29, an Ukrainian Su-27, furthermore a Fokker 60 from the Netherlands, a Casa 235 from Spain, two F-16C (AV), two F-15C (LN) and a C-130 (RS) from the USAF, a Canadian CF-18, two German Tornados and an F-4F and finally a Galeb G-2A from the Serbian Republic. Having finished the static display, it has been time for the flight program.
