Re: Zeltweg AirPower 2013

Not the latest news but since there are still no participants on the website:

+ Turkish Stars

The OV-10 Bronco, a Fouga Magister (EADS?) and Spitfire should also be there according to a local Newspaper.

Re: Kecskemét Airshow, Hungary - 2013

Really want to be at this show. Does anyone know a great deal about getting there from the UK? Quick bit of digging, looks like you can get flights for under £200 return, and there's a train that runs hourly from Budapest for about a fiver, brilliant. Almost definitely going to be going to this, co...

Re: Double Helicopter Crash (Berlin, Police)

To some people it is always to early to start pointing the finger, but be realistic ; one look at that movie and everybody say it is madness to fly with such a weather. Looking at the video and pictures the weather and visibility itself does not seem to be that bad. In the video the visibility clea...

Re: RIAT 2013

Out of interest, how are Iskry? It'd be nice to see the TS-11 before it's retired. Some nice photo opportunities with the red and white jets but generally underwhelming display, lacking precision and the maneuvres are nothing special. I remember a seemingly very uncoordinated show in Leeuwarden 200...
