Poland II 2017
In August 2017 we travelled to Poland for the second time in 2017. We visited the Air Show at Radom, that was scheduled to happen only shortly before the actual date. During our stay we were also allowed a base visit to Mińsk Mazowiecki.
The 2017 Radom Air Show was a show that was announced, cancelled, announced, cancelled and announced again. When finally announced 4Aviation decided to ask if enough people would be interested to go. And so it happened that we ended up having 13 people gathering at Schiphol on Wednesday 23 August 2017. They were joined on the same flight to Warsaw by a large group of 4Aviation travellers that were heading for Moscow (the ARMY 2017 tour). After arriving at Warsaw three additional participants joined the group. The first stop was Dęblin. We were guessing that the rehearsal scheme for the Polish Air Force opening parade would be somewhat similar to previous editions. It more or less was the same, albeit that only one aircraft of each type was participating in the rehearsals today. Nevertheless we enjoyed ourselves a lot at the Dęblin museum. From Dęblin we drove to Radom (on our way to the hotel) to see if we could capture some arrivals/rehearsals there. We were lucky to catch the Polish Navy choppers arriving. After that we drove to our regular hotel south of Radom and ended up being served great food in the evening.
