In August 2015 we travelled to the Radom Air Show in Poland again. A very nice event that we could combine this time with a base visit to Mińsk-Mazowiecki.
The third 4Aviation tour to Poland for the Radom Air Show started on Wednesday 19 August. Like in 2011 and 2013 the outlook was that the Polish Air Force would be well represented and that an interesting array of visiting aircraft would be there. The confirmed base visit to Mińsk-Mazowiecki during the rehearsals of the fly-past completed the picture of the 2015 tour. So it happened that on 19 August a total of 23 people gathered at Schiphol on time to check in for their flight to Warsaw. After our arrival and filling in way to many papers to get hold of our three rental vans we entered the busy Polish traffic. Today and Friday rehearsals would be flown for the fly-past/parade. The fighters were operating from Mińsk-Mazowiecki (where our visit was scheduled for Friday) and Poznan, while the helicopters and transport aircraft would be operating from Dęblin. Therefore, we drove to Dęblin, hoping for some rehearsal activity and for a visit to the museum. Due to the heavy traffic we arrived at Dęblin rather late. Although we did not see the participants of the parade the museum was very nice and we saw some operational bare metal TS-11s that could be photographed very nicely from the museum. After the museum closed we continued towards our hotel South of Radom (our regular location for Poland/Radom by now).
