Ukraine II 2018
In July/August 2018, 4Aviation was able to join a group of international journalists to visit several facilities of the Ukrainian armed forces and government agencies. The representatives of 4Aviation regularly attend press days and press tours to report on the units for future publications. Obtaining access to these facilities, with the intention to write some articles, is always a time consuming and final permission is only given at the last minute.
The first participants arrived at Kiev-Borispol airport on Sunday 29 July and spent the night in a nearby hotel.
The rest of the 4Aviation group arrived on Monday 30 July and the first visit was to the huge State Aviation Museum near/at Zhulyany airport. The sun was shining brightly and with museum opening up especially for the group (as it is normally closed on Monday), there was no problem at all capturing the brilliant collection. In the evening we moved to a different hotel in Kiev, more conveniently located to meet up with the rest of the photographers visiting this week.
