When? 16-21/11/2010

The 8th edition of the Airshow China held at the Zhuhai airport was announced this year with a strong participation of the China Air Force, the PLAAF (People's Liberation Army - Air Force).

The first announcement of the flying program was unfortunately glooming, but as each aircraft there would be a rare item I was really looking forward to this event.

Czech International Air Fest

Where? Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic
When? 04-05/09/2010

After the move from Brno to Hradec Kralove in 2003 it was time to see how (and 'to what') the CIAF (Czech International Air Fest) has developed, back at the airport where it originally started in the 1990s. In the meantime quite a lot has changed at Hradec Kralove, with the most important change being for sure the transformation from a military airfield to a small civil airport.

Duxford – Flying Legends airshow. Once you have been there once it is quite difficult not to come back, as this show offers a real blast of piston engine powered aircraft. No jets, no noise, just pure music. 2011 was another year for me to go back to this legendary show.

Who would have thought that after a highly variable forecast and heavy rain showers in the afternoon Shuttleworth's Evening Air Display commemorating the Battle of Britain would become a glorious event?! With the late start of the flying program around 17h30 there was fortunately enough time for the rain to pour down in the afternoon and for the storm clouds and lightings to move east of the airfield.
