A small 4Aviation group went to Portugal at the end of June/early July 2022 for a visit to the spotters day for Real Thaw 2022 at Beja and the air show for the 70th anniversary of the Portuguese Air Force at the same base.
Five men gathered at Schiphol-Plaza on Wednesday 29 June earlier than usual. After a short introduction, the group left after checking in via the now infamous tents to the security-check. After a flight of almost three hours we landed in Lisbon in sunny conditions. The three international travelers were already waiting for the Dutchmen there. After renting a van we left in a southeasterly direction to the town of Moura. This would be our home base for the next five nights. A pleasant stay with good food and drink nearby.
