Very nice. If I manage to bag it this season, I can content-aware-fill the RAF100 stickers in photoshop to make them disappear.

To the team involved in making it happen :up:

Not sure if you guys read the comments on poznan air show facebook page. If you are traveling by car, there might be some issues regarding parking. Unless you paid for the vip ticket, you can't use the onsite parking and there is no option to upgrade your tiger meet and airshow spotter ticket to vip or buy a separate parking ticket. Be prepared to go there early and find alternative parking nearby. The organiser is the worst I've ever seen in my life. BTW, I am going with Ian Allan and I think the tour leader will sort out this.

The first iteration of the airshow back in 2015 was really bad, they had a few interesting items lined up, but most of them didn't fly, and for the better part of the weekend you sat around waiting for a gap in the normal traffic to see if any of the acts would go up. The Turkish Stars got to fly twice on the Saturday, once in the morning as a rehearsal and then again in the afternoon for their full display - right before their afternoon display a Stearman took off for it's display, but had to land again after a minute because the Turks had taken off from Krzesiny and would be there in 15 minutes... So we were back to waiting. In 2016 they changed to the way that they're doing the show now, where they have a split the displays into "blocks" with a couple of pauses in between to get the normal traffic in and out - which worked well. There's still no parking if you want to go on base though, you'll have to be early and park somewhere nearby and walk.

All I can say is Krzesiny Base is known in Poland for being weird. They organise closed airshows for politicians and themselves, can't handle with traffic, everything is soo frustrating. I'm sure that if NTM were organised at any other base in Poland, there wouldn't be all these problems...

I know that every Polish citizen passed the verification, but some of them didn't get confirmation, probably the same situation is with foreigners. You have to contact organisers, that's the only possibility.

As tiger meets go, very poor. The choppers didn’t come near us.

Coaches weren't planned to run until 4pm, nearly a diplomatic incident at the front of the queue when the first, and only, bus disappeared.

Fair play to the Polish air force general for trying to sort it out.
One day Roland will be gone, will we have a club left though?.
