The Bryza seems to be doing a lot of flying during the show.

No MiG-29 solo display :/ looks like the majority of Polish aircraft will feature only in the flypast.

The program on their Facebook page looks a bit different and lists the Su-22, MiG-29 and FA-50 for a pyrotechnics display after the flypast. And the Su-22 again in the evening. But yeah, no MiG-29 solo - I wasn't expecting a full display from it, but a bit of turning and bruning would have been appreciated.

Most interesting part of the latest news report from press conference today - translated with Google - so beware!

Col. Waldemar Gołębiowski talked about the program of the event. – On Saturday, August 26, we open our gates at 9.00. At 10.00 the planes from the historical block will take off. The famous RWD-5, in which Captain Stanisław Skarżyński flew across the Atlantic, will be the first to appear in the sky - the officer announced the start of the demonstrations. According to the program, in the sky we will also see RWD-8, DHC Chipmunk, Piper Cub, T-6 Harvard, P-51 Mustang, TS-11 Iskra and Tercel gyroplane. Then, a parade of 70 aircraft awaits the audience, and it will be started by... parachute jumpers who will jump out of Bryza plane.
Then the sky above the airport will light up thanks to a pyrotechnic show by Su-22, MiG-29 and FA-50 pilots. After their performance in the air, we will see: three M-18B Dromader machines, M-28 Bryza, EXTRA-300SC, 3xAT-3 formation, An-2, F-16C from Greece, M-28 Bryza, W-3 Sokół helicopter, M -346 Bielik, SW-4 Puszczyk, C-295 CASA, F-16 from Denmark, AW-109 Leonardo, LIM-2/SB LIM-2, GameBird GB-1, Cellfast, F/A-18 from Finland, JAS -39 Gripen from the Czech Republic, AW-149 Leonardo, Rafale from France, W-3 SAR and Orlen Aerobatic Group "Żelazny".

The next block of shows will start with M-28 Bryza and the "Orlik" Aerobatic Team, followed by: Eurofighter Typhoon from Great Britain, AW-101 helicopter, Patrouille Suisse Aerobatic Team and F-16 from Belgium. The culmination of this part of the event will be the dynamic Red Bull Air Race show: 2 Alpha Jet, Cobra, Bo-105, Edge 540.

For the first time at the Air Show in Radom there will be night shows. Around 19.00 the following will appear in the sky: Orlen Aerobatic Group "Żelazny", two TS-11 Iskra aircraft, Bush Cat team, Su-22, SWIFT-1 group, Flying Dragons Team and Bo-105, C-130 aircraft and Aerosparx group . The night block of Radom shows will last about an hour.

The organizers have not yet revealed the program for Sunday. “We have some surprises that I won't talk about today. However, I will reveal that we will be doing some things for the first time in Europe, for the first time in Poland - revealed Colonel Gołębiowski. He also informed about a historical event for the Polish military aviation. – The MiG-29 aircraft will arrive here accompanied by the FA-50, to which it will transfer command in the air – said the officer. In turn, Brig. Gen. Grzegorz Ślusarz, commander of the 4th Training Aviation Wing and director of the Air Show in Radom, announced the premiere of the M-346 demonstration pilot's skills. “Never before has such a flight been performed by a Polish pilot. And let me just add that this pilot is an "ordinary" instructor who puts on a uniform every day and trains future "fighters" of fighter aviation - emphasized Brig. Gen. Locksmith.

The organizers also invited to the static exhibition, where as many as 50 aircraft will be presented, including: MiG-29, Su-22, F-16, M-346 Bielik, PZL-130 Orlik, M-28 Bryza, C -130 Hercules, C-295 CASA, FA-50, helicopters: S-70i, W-3WA SAR, Mi-2, SW-4 Puszczyk, Mi-17, W-3 Głuszec, Mi-14, AW-101 and Bayraktar TB2 unmanned aerial systems. We will also see guests from abroad: Czech C-27 Spartan, American OH-58 Kiowa Warrior, UH-60 Black Hawk from Croatia and German P-3C Orion and A-400. – Certainly a unique opportunity will be the opportunity to see the KC-135 tanker from the Illinois National Guard of the USA. And right next to it, there will be a mock-up of the F-35 aircraft, encouraged Col. Waldemar Gołębiowski.

Looks a cracking show .
Still seems to be a mystery what we will see of the MiG-29 and Su-22 . And how much of an appearance the F-35 will make - just in the formation flypast maybe?

I'm glad the RAF Typhon is making a somewhat rare excursion abroad but I always feel as if BBMF (or at least one of their Hurricanes) should attend.
Obviously a none trivial undertaking to get there but the Poles made such a massive contribution to the RAF - seems the least we can do I feel.

In the FAQ section of the app there's a question regarding beverages, which is answered by "each participant may bring one container with a beverage, but no larger than half a litre". Anyone know if this rule is enforced? I remember them banning people from bringing any form of drinks through the gates a few years back, but I thought they'd gone back on that.

I'm going to need a lot more than half a litre of water if I'm going to be outside in the sun the whole day 😝

The local water company mentioned they will supply free water refill points. So if you take a half liter bottle, you could refill as many times as you want

Just leave your bottle on the ground with the lid off. The forecast thunderstorms will soon fill it up!

Which is fair enough, but I was hoping to avoid queuing to get water several times a day. And it's a bit early to trust the weather forecasts ;)

Half a litre of water runs out very quickly at 29 degrees :/ what a silly rule.

Yeah, they did this when I went in 2015 - I remember walking past a huge vat of various confiscated drinks of all types & containers (including water) & thinking what a stupid thing to be doing. Luckily it wasn't unbearably warm that year, but if it had been it wouldn't have been pleasant!

To what end though?? If they're giving away water for free inside, what's the concern??

Italian F-35s have been removed from the app'. However it now looks like Hungary will be sending a H145M for static + Slovak Air Force L-410
