Director said 22 countries will participate so it seems the list is full. Maybe there's still a chance to get something else, but at the moment these 22 countries that we already know are confirmed. In my opinion we shouldn't expect Chile, Brazil or even France.

We still don't know what US, Netherlands and Sweden will send. Maybe all 3 will send airplanes only for static.
Anyway, great line up! On of the best in Europe ever.

I've never been there during departures but read on the internet that it always starts on Monday morning, last year at +/- 9 am. Here are some videos:

And some are trying to make out that it is the show of the year, better than RIAT etc.

Don't get me wrong, what they are getting is very good, the JF-17 and Ukrainian Su25 are outstanding if they turn up, some excellent support as well Croatian Team, Slovak MiG29, Su27 etc. plus the home team for any of us foreigners. But its incomparable when you don't have the static line up and a show that faces into the sun all day.

Great show still. :biggrin:

You could always go outside the showground where the sun is behind your back and the flying is much closer. The show's official website even has a link to an article about best places to view the show from outside.

Information about spotter packs: http://airshow.wp.mil.pl/artykuly/dla-p ... otterskie/

It will be translated into English soon, most important things:

- deadline for sending application is July 20 at 3 pm CEST
- you send it to akredytacje.airshow@ron.mil.pl and have to write your name, date and place of birth, citizenship, passport number, personal identity number, e-mail and contact number
- the cost is €60 for three days (Friday-Sunday), it's impossible to get it just for one day
- spotter packs allow you to enter spotters' area, you'll get t-shirt etc and you'll be able to be in the base on Friday during Training Day (it starts at 9 am local time)
- there will be free Internet and possibility to charge the batteries

I think that's all, English version will appear here: http://en.airshow.wp.mil.pl/artykuly/li ... the_Press/

edit: Here it is:

Press accreditation: http://en.airshow.wp.mil.pl/artykuly/fo ... ditations/

I found one on the Internet, google "Pole namiotowe 26-200 Radom". It looks like private field, but is probably the only one there.

Some people sleep at Skaryszewska Street in their cars and tents. I also read that 7 years ago there were special campsites at "MOSiR Borki" and "Ośrodek Szkoleniowo Wypoczynkowy" in Rajec. I don't know if there's possibility to be there this year.

Btw Mig-21 participation is under question. People on Polish forum say also that last Mig-29 crash may impact on Radom Air Show - there may be no information about this event for a few weeks beacuse Polish Air Force is concentrated on explanation this tragedy and the previous. Su-22 and Mig-29 are still grounded, let's hope problem with ejection seats will be fixed quick, I can't imagine 100th anniversary without these aircraft.
