In order to visit the airshow at Plovdiv (BIAF 2009), a group of 8 enthusiasts visited Bulgaria in May 2009.
Early morning on Friday 22 May 2009, the group gathered at Schiphol. After check-in we headed out for Sofia were we arrived late afternoon. After picking op the rental van we visited the aviation Museum in Sofia. This Museum is part of the large museum in Plovdiv and gives a good overview of the types of the Bulgarian Air Force. Although the museum was actually closed, the friendly people of the museum let us in and gave us some time to wander around. After finishing here, we drove to Plovdiv to find our hotel for the coming three nights.
