Radom Airshow 2018

Postby CameronSys on Tue 28 Aug 2018, 4:52 pm

Long weekend in Poland for the airshow at Radom-Sadków. Day spent out in the sunshine on Skaryszewska for display rehearsals (although on the 25 approach for 'that' morning arrival). Then into the airshow on Saturday for the main event, a great airshow but sadly effected by rain and low cloud on both Saturday and Sunday. The turnout of both locals and enthusiasts was incredible and certainly added up to a great atmosphere. Amazing how the temperature dropped by about 20 degrees in 48 hours...

Starting off with the arrival of the Ukrainian contingent on Friday morning..!

Then over to Skaryszewska.. the JF-17 solo was a great powerful display of an aircraft very rarely seen in Europe, so a shame they spent the weekend parked up at Dęblin becasue of the weather

The Czech Gripen put on a great demonstration too

Into the show for a gloomy first day of the show. That said, some great displays and friendly crews with the static aircraft, some of which aren't really seen here in the UK anymore (SU-25, Mi-2, for example)

Then the final show day even cooler and wetter than the Saturday, yet still entertaining

All in all a great show, and one definitely worth visiting.

Runway at Radom is not long enough for JF-17 in case of emergency. And I asume it has no arresting hook installed
