SIAF 4/8/19

Postby Roger_Over on Tue 13 Aug 2019, 8:12 pm

I checked out the Slovak International Air Fest for the first time, only did the Sunday, north to south orientated runway with crowdline to the east, interesting static displays buried amongst merchandise stalls, great catering, relaxed feel, variable weather from blistering sun to thunder storms but a nice mix of displays including former Soviet types on a former Soviet airfield which made it special. Well worth 15 euros for the ticket.

Never seen SIAF photos before so thanks for posting.
Is it a air show with big crowds like RIAT or is it something a bit smaller.

Hi Frank,

It was smaller than RIAT, not sure how many thousand were there but no hassle getting a place at the front and there was only a surge of interest for certain acts, usually not the ones I was excited about so it worked well. Parking was well organised, camping free, apart from having to get there from Durham and be back at work on Monday it was great!

Thanks for sharing these great images from what looked like a varied show. I nearly booked to go with Ian Allan Aviation Tours, but by the time I had made a decision, bookings were closed! Your pictures made me wish I had acted sooner!

Thank you Alpha Delta and Andy for comments,

It was an impulse decision but surprisingly really good, and I'd do both days next time given the chance. Getting a cheap flight to Bratislava and a hire care was no bother, and could actually work out very cheap if there were a few of you going.

Cheers
