Aeromiting Batajnica 2012
Where? Belgrade, Serbia
When? 02/09/2012

The flight back from the 100th anniversary Air Show of the Serbian AIr Force from Batjanica was with mixed emotions. There were some very rare and unique aircraft and presentations to see, as a 'dogfight' between a MiG-21 and two MiG-29s, or local build and rare types such as the Orao and the Super Galeb.

 

 

However, as I try to bring back memories and photos for also presenting them here on the site, the photo opportunities were very rare and had hard to be fighted for. A very crowded static display, two separate and quite distant runways and a hazy sky were not the best ingredients for some nice shots.
However, it all changed on Sunday afternoon when most of the participants taxied back towards the crowdline ... but at that time I was not on the airfield anymore. However...

 

 

Oraos and Super Galebs did some air-ground attack demonstrations, including the release of flares and heavy maneuvers:

 

Nevertheless there some nice moments on the ground and in the air when the Serbian Air Force presented their hardware. Amongst the photographers the efforts of the ground personal at the end of the Saturday's showday to properly 'dress' the MiGs in the static display area will be long remembered for.

What a blast! Standing at any of the runway ends during the Duxford air shows is a stunning experience. Either you get to see the aircraft turning in onto the display line or they make you feel their massive horse powers while passing you on take-off. As usual action is guaranteed!
