In 2010 we were welcome to visit the Slovak Air Force bases with a group. The visit took place in beautiful weather and great hospitality. During our stay in Slovakia we also visited a couple of interesting museums.
Between 7 and 12 June 2010, 4Aviation toured Slovakia with 10 people, for a visit to the Slovak Air Force.
After an uneventful flight from Amsterdam to Budapest on Monday 7 June 2010, the 8 Dutch met the 2 British guys in Budapest. After a quick peek at what Budapest-Ferihegy had to offer we headed off towards Košice for the first night. The previous weeks the weather had been appalling and large areas in the eastern part of Hungary and Slovakia had been flooded. Although the weather was perfect when we arrived, we did witness the outcome of the huge amounts of rain the fell earlier. We were redirected from the main highway towards the town of Miskolc and via secondary roads. This did lead to the first aircraft of the tour though; a Hungarian Mi-17 was on temporary duty from the Miskolc airport. Despite the detour we managed to arrive at the hotel in Košice relatively early.
