In 2015 4Aviation was given permission to visit two Austrian Air Force bases at the end of the year. Awesome access for photos was granted at both Zeltweg and Linz-Hörsching.
The 4Aviation tour to Austria started on Monday 23 November. Since permission to visit Zeltweg and Linz-Hörsching was only obtained shortly before the group of participants had to be put together rather fast. Eventually 8 people participated in the tour, 5 of which gathered at Rotterdam very early on this Monday morning to be able to fly to Vienna with Transavia. We landed in Austria at 08.30 already and after some challenges we even managed to find the rental car location. There 2 other participants were already waiting and after the last participant had landed and joined the group we were able to hit the road. The visit to Zeltweg was scheduled for Tuesday and we wanted to use the Monday to see some wrecks & relics. Before that we started with the Austrian Aviation Museum at Bad Vöslau. This is located at the airport so you need to announce your intended visit before you go there. The reception was very friendly of course and after about an hour we continued our journey. Via Wiener Neustadt we headed for Graz and Voitsberg to end up at our hotel which was very close to Zeltweg. A nice and relaxed day with some very nice wrecks & relics obviously had to end with Schnitzel.
