On Sunday 23 October 2016, 10 excited photographers gathered at Eindhoven for the start of a 2-day visit to Poland. Main reason to be excited were the upcoming base visits we had planned at two frontline bases of the Polish Air Force: Świdwin and Malbork. For a moment the fog at Eindhoven threatened our flight but we were lucky enough to be the first flight to actually leave Eindhoven that day. After a pleasant flight we landed just a little late at Gdańsk where we met the other participants of the tour and picked up our rental vans. We headed out to our hotel, nicely built in an old castle and providing all things necessary.
