Re: CIAF Hradec Králové 7/8 September 2013

And no knights. Except the SU-27 we are facing the worst line up in CIAF history I would say? I know it is private airshow, but... If I remember the CIAFs in Brno, they were huge compared to what is now showing up at Hradec. Arrival list for tomorrow, just imagine: The following arrivals are planned...

Re: Agg at the Radom Airshow

Nice set of images, and good to see the Romanians still have different liverys. To Kecskemet always the same livery is coming! :grin:

Re: NATO Days Ostrava September 21st-22nd

The road from Albrechticky to the showground is open for people, and that's still a better spot than inside the base. I'm confident we'll find a solution. Sure, if you are allowed to drive. But as Screenes wrote, just be there before 6:00 AM The only question is how far one is allowed to walk on th...

Re: NATO Days Ostrava September 21st-22nd

Chief of organising company mentioned closure of that area during the meeting with the "fans of NATO days" in spring. But I think they can not close Albrechticky village, which, in my opinion, is still a better place than the official area. It is already a problem to enter Albrechticky du...

Re: NATO Days Ostrava September 21st-22nd

Yeah. The only bad thing I fear is the news that the whole area (under the display center) will be locked up this year. :sad: It was announced by several spotters from CZ, so I cannot prove it.

Any advance warning as to which end they are likely to be using tomorrow?
