Re: MAKS 2019

Hi,

The other museum is located at Medyn, Kaluga region, south west of Moscow. Located at the southern most part of the village when looking at the map.
Not sure if open yet....

Re: 40 Years TLP Albacete 11-12/05/208

Hi,

Whilst the airshow may still go ahead, I have seen talk of the expected TLP course being cancelled due to other events namely Tiger Meet & Frisian Flag.

Best keep an eye on here too.

Re: Dictionary of aviation enthusiast slang considered "chav
