Hello, there is no official information about this. Regarding the info we got at the moment - yes, invitation cards IS needed for access to 100th Anniversary in Zhukovsky.

Here we go..............
The guy I know at Kamov has mentioned in an email that this is how he sees things happening..... Friday if it happens maybe for Flying Clubs, DOSAAF , Light Aerobatics , Home Builds etc ,Saturday will be for Polititions and Delegations and Sunday will be for current and ex Services and their families. This "mess" as he calls it has come about because the MOD would not let any other company such a Aviasalon take control of the Show set up and running and things have fallen into disaray as the Military have no experiance of Public Shows. All Delegates ,Polititions and Service Personeel past and present will already have clearance so won't need security etc to gain access so making it easier for the MOD to run the Show. Any Press , TV etc will have to apply for passses etc but he says that he's heard that even these passes and paperwork are being kept to a close number.
As for getting near the Show rather than in it , if it's anything like MAKS your having a Giraffe. Vehicle passes are needed to get anywhere near the area and then you have to deal with the "miltary" to get any closer to the site. Maybe worth a try but a week in Butyrka doesn't sound good to me !!! When I visit MAKS I always buy "special" tickets and car "passes" so we can park on the base and gain easy access. Costs a bit but worth it. Was hoping to do the same at this Show but no chance.
Maybe someone on this Forum is going with Ian Allan or BAES . What have they told their customers ? Any news ?
