 Where? Brno-Turany Airport, Czech Republic
When? 02.-03./09/2006

The Czech International Air Fest (CIAF) usually marks each year the end of my personal airshow season, the CIAF 2006 being no exception for that. After a personal calm and not always photographically successful 2006 a warm and sunny week-end in Brno forgiving provided a forgiving completion of this year.

  The main reason for this was that the flying was once again really special and varied in contrast to a lot of the other shows on the continent. In the morning from 8 to 11 there was some time to have a look at the static display, talk to the pilots, drink a beer, buy some sausages or to have a look at some model kits.
The flying started at 11am with a formation fly-by of the Czech Air Force (CzAF) that fortunately supported the CIAF a lot more with their participation than before.

The EAA Airventure 2017 was announced to be the bomber year!

Apart from that once again more than 10.000 aircraft flew to Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, making it at that time the busiest airport in the world with approximately 123 aircraft movements per hour. For the pilots it was once again the great fly-in, and the highlight for the airshow this year were the US Navy Blue Angels.

Turkey Air Show 2011 - Izmir

Where? Izmir, Turkey
When? 4-5/06/2011

In many places aviation Centennials are celebrated, and so did the Turkish Air Force. The official events already started in January, but cumulated for the public in the International air show, hosted at the 2nd Main Jet Base Command (Çigli/Izmir) on 04-05 June 2011. As Turkey is very secretive and restricted with everything regarding their military, it is no wonder that the spotterdays offered on the day before and after the event was soon fully booked with 1000 (!) enthusiasts wanting to attend.
