Impressions from Zeltweg Airbase - AIRPOWER

Hey folks, Had a great weekend in Styria with lots of action and sound despite a few very disappointing cancellations from the flying display. Airpower team did their best to put on a fantastic show with a nice setting in between the hills. Weather played ball as well, some sun and increasing clouds...

Re: AIRPOWER 2013 Zeltweg Austria 28th & 29th of June

Great shots Peter and Gyula, like that Falcon in front of the Tower - so thats the view you get from over there, was wondering how that spot is like. :smile:

Helis and number 04 are superb as well I agree but it shows your sensor is in the need of a cleaning session!

Re: Zeltweg AirPower 2013

Not more Red Bull nonsense than in previous years imho and at least they fly formations rather than solo displays for every aircraft in their fleet. where was the P-38??weather was ok today. maybe a standard item but, how awesome was that Dutch Falcon today low and dynamic in front of the hills! air...

Re: Zeltweg AirPower 2013

Don't care about the AWACS but the Hornet canceling is very bad news. On the official facebook site they stated that the Swiss AF's display pilot is not available at the moment. Looks like many shows face cancellations these days when I look at Kecskemet and Wittmund threads.... Any news about the r...

Re: How will you be taking in the show this year?

If I go to RIAT this year which is not granted yet but quite likely I will do it the same way I used to in the past. This means I have to fly in from MUC or some other airport to STN on Friday, rent a car and, while constantly remembering to drive on the left side of the road ( ), get to a hotel in ...

Re: Luchtmachtdagen Volkel 2013

Great show, good organisation and weather was ok too, well worth the 8h drive. Loved Ramex Delta, that special colored Phantom and the Greeks in the static made me smile as well. Also enjoyed the rain display of Solo Türk! Air Power Demo was good too but not as good as Leeuwarden 2008, I expected an...

Yeah the loss of the MiG is bad but I also did not see it at Volkel so I expected it would not be at Zeltweg also... Still going to...

Re: Zeltweg AirPower 2013

Quite a nice line up this year with the Fitters being the highlight (so far :smile: ).

Unfortunately the BD-5 must be taken off the list as the aircraft crashed shortly killing the pilot. :sad:

Is there any official source available about the status of the display...does it happen ...

Re: RIAT 2013

Anyone know if it's likely there will be a Super Hornet display at RIAT this year? I think the Swiss are sending one to Yeovilton or Waddington? I don't know which countries have an F18 demo?? The questions, the questions... Very unlikely I would say. Spain, Switzerland, Finland, the US, Canada and...

Here you go. Is that a great surprise or problem? I'm not sure I have ever seen them at RIAT anyway and only one show outside of Poland or "Czechy" so it's what was expected. I have seen them at RIAT, I think that was in one of the Cottesmore years !? As said before this is not a big prob...

Re: Zeltweg AirPower 2013

When did you see the 5 F-16 displays, because I missed that one? Maybe a bit of an exaggeration but in 2011 there were 4 if I remember correctly. It may be a good idea to stop comparing at this point, there are pros and cons for all events. Zeltweg for example will always have a rather small static...

Re: Zeltweg AirPower 2013

Yeah, I have to agree with Eizo here. Zeltweg has in recent years given RIAT (even a good RIAT) a run for its money, but this year looks slightly disappointing. Huh? The list looks almost identical to 2011 so far and that year was far from disappointing....amazing how quickly people get spoilt. Som...
