Re: Melun-Villaroche 2021

Sanicole has been held in that September weekend since 2009. The date for the 2021 show was set 2 or 3 years ago, so no, it hasn't moved recently :)

After the successful 2018 event, the team behind Ursel Avia (Belgium) took 2019 off to come back bigger and stronger in 2020. This is not a meaningless statement: for the first time in over 20 years, Ursel will host a full-fledged airshow again! On Friday 26 June, there will be a spottersday to allo...

Fast-paced action and unique aircraft, this is hopefully worth your time watching it.

Re: BIAS 2020

If the parking near the old tower is open, I'd say that would be the best bet. You're out of the way from the busy road so you can hold a conversation.

Re: BIAS 2020

I have never tried it but there is an Ikea and shopping mall parking lot on the opposite side of the airfield that jets thunder over. Only issue is you'll be staring into the sun. I believe the parking at the end of the runway is closed that day. You could try standing near the bus stop perhaps and ...

Well, the Bucharest International airshow had 4 solo displays by the LanceR, including one by a two-seater and one with flares, and flypasts with formations of 6/5/4 Mig-21s. Add to that just about everythi...

Re: Athen’s flying week 21st and 22nd Sep 2019

If memory serves, we arrived at the base around 9 last year and had no queue at all, parked in the first or second row of cars. In the evening, it is a different story, unless you decide to depart before the end of the pyro displays.

Re: International Sanicole Airshow, 13 & 15 September 2019

The next Belgian AF airshow will indeed be at Florennes, but only in 2021, last weekend of June. It will celebrate 75 years of the Belgian air force. As that show is at Florennes, the Sanicole airshow will also go ahead in 2021 at its usual September slot.

That is the one indeed. Enjoy it! I've never done the spotters pack there, standing in that sun for more than the weekend show is more than my body can handle. Also, may I suggest trying some of the showground catering? I've never tried it (again, high temps and my body don't mix), but it always sme...

Re: Athen’s flying week 21st and 22nd Sep 2019

You took care of my biggest piece of advice: get an enclosure. it's useful because you'll be on the crowdline which is nice for the taxy shots, but also because you'll have at least a chance you'll find a place to shelter from the sun.

That's more probable even than what I was thinking, I had one of those nasal sprays in mind. I sound about the same when I use them.
