Re: Nato Days 2019 - Ostrava

There are some good photographic locations outside of the base, but I didn’t try them myself. Hope to make it back one day! Unfortunately, you won't be able to any more, as the fields used in the passed will be closed. Not only the position below the display line - from the parking space at Albrech...

Haha! 400 CZK for USAF Dny 2016 Patch... To compare, you can have dinner + beer for 4 people in local restaurants for 400 CZ. Morons!

Re: Airpower '16

It took me fairly two seconds to put my cap down, maybe yours were too heavy? Comparing Airpower with RIAT, seriously? RIAT is the worst nightmare when it comes to handling of an entrance queue, and I know what I'm talking about. Airpower saw more than 300.000 visitors on both show days, RIAT in 201...

Re: NATO DAYS Ostrava 2016

I doubt the static B1B, I assume it will become a flyby at the end. Who will secure it the whole week there? Arrival is to be on Tuesday.

Re: Airpower '16

The special shuttle train from Kraubath to Zeltweg (for Airpower only) is operating in Saturday only. For Friday you have to take the normal trains - which should also be enough.

Has anyone ever used the Kraubath park and ride? There's not really any info on it, such as time of first/last train! m To my knowledge there are no "special" service trains available, the railway OEBB only adds more waggons to the train to satisfy the demand. m This is the timetable for ...

Last tickets available:

5 days is overrated, I recommend 2 days ticket and first 2 days to stay at Flatschacherweg. Sunday was waste of money in the past, unfortunately. Interesting stuff always departed on Monday!

Re: NATO DAYS Ostrava 2016

Some suggestions: Get there as early as possible - meaning be there BEFORE 06:00 local time! They will shut down all streets around the airport. Drive via Albrechtičky to the fence, and walk northeast direction along the fence, as I described in prior threads: viewtopic.php?p=623807#p623807 Do we kn...

Re: Kecskemét 30 and 31/7/2016

I think the truth is somewhere in between. HuAF lost two Gripens last year, including one of only two two-seaters + one Yak-52. However, I think the main reason is the fence we built on our border with Serbia, which took a lot of money. In the past the main part was always foreign aircraft displays...

He means refugees. Oh right, the people escaping war. I see. Ah, euphemism 4tw. Well, I would say if I'm thirsty, I'd stop at the first fountain possible, so it is hard to believe they still escape war in Turkey or Greece, but their target is Sweden, Denmark, Germany...
