Siad02Where? Bratislava - Slovak Republic
When? 08-09/06/2002

SIAD 2002 has been the 5th International Air Display in the young history of the Slovak Republic. It was held the weekend of the 8th an 9th of June at the M.R. Stefanika Airport, which is Bratislava's International Airport and situated in the east of the capital of Slovakia.

Going there seemed a god idea to me as I expected to see some eastern aircraft and the program published in the Internet promised some highlights, too. And I should not have been disappointed...
After a 5hr drive from Munich I arrived in the early morning at Bratislava, where it has not been evident to find to the airport. After some time I arrived at the parking place (using a Jeep would have been a good idea there…) and started my 20min walk to the entrance.
From far the first tails were visible and I already knew that it was worth the journey!

Wings over Houston Airshow

(Reading time: 4 - 8 minutes)

Wings Over Houston 2017
Where? Ellington Airfield, Houston, Texas, USA
When? 20-22 October 2017

Wings over Houston 2017 was an awesome airshow! Plenty of warbirds, a Messerschmitt Me 262, jets from the Vietnam era, amongst them the venerable F-4D Phantom II, made up for a great program. This great mix on show at Ellington Airport in the South of Houston was enriched by aerobatic acts and the USAF Thunderbirds. With a 34-year long history the airshow is still very much alive and kicking!

Where? Zhuhai, People's Republic of China
When? November 2012

The bi-annual Airshow China at Zhuhai is more or less the only chance to get a view on modern Chinese aviation hardware, and to take some legal photos of it. That was the main reason to go there once again, and this is how it came out in the end.

The CASA 1.131-E is the licence-build Spanish version of the Bücker Bü 131 Jungmann. Around 550 aircraft were build in Spain from 1938 until the 1960s and served primarily as an initial trainer aircraft for new Spanish AF pilots. The type stayed within the Spanish AF with the military designation E-3B until 1986, thus making it the longest Jungmann-flying Air Force in the world – with an astonishing service time of 50 years!
