BIAS 2017

Here's my efforts from BIAS 2017 in Romania, as was said in another thread it was way too hot, especially for someone like me but it was so worth it for the sight of 6 MiG 21's in formation followed by a solo :smile:

Some from the show day, a 12 hour flying display in the baking heat but I'd suffer again just for the MiG 21's to be honest :smile:

Lots of great Pics and Planes there, and I certainly would agree those 21's are well worth suffering for!

Thanks for posting some great pics and surviving heat exhaustion!
Now you might cost me money in visiting Romania sometime. Is there a show planned for 2018 and is there an arrivals day or departures day? From one picture I've seen it looks like the runway in use is distant but the airshow flightline closer?
Thanks again for sharing.

There is indeed a show planned 2018 & i'd reccomend it enormously. I went on the friday & there is some arrivals but most of the fighters, with the exception of the Hellenic Mirage 2000, were already there. As you say the runway is pretty distant unfortunately but the flightline is closer. The static is pretty small & the home aircraft, except the solo MiG 21, flew in from their home bases so the runway isn't used that much so it's not a huge issue as far as that goes.

Thanks Dan for your details in replying. Your pics are enough to get me there despite the possible oven temperatures! Did you or anyone you know go onto the Câmpia Turzii Air Show the following week or still on a saline drip from BIAS dehydration :-)
cheers Nigel

I'm still on that drip, couldn't believe how much I dehydrated over the 2 full days, even drinking 3 litres of water a day wasn't anywhere near enough. I didn't go to the Câmpia Turzii show unfortunately

Love the MiG-21 fuel tank on the side of the Mil-8... overall a superb selection too. A must for me one day!
