The famous AIRPOWER show at Zeltweg was back on the agenda for September 2022. We decided to visit this show again and travelled to Austria with a small group.
On Thursday 1 September 2022 a group of six people gathered at Schiphol, four hours prior to our flight to Graz. As customs went smooth this time we were 45 minutes later at the gate, where we were soon joined by a seventh participant arriving from the UK. After a smooth flight we arrived on time at Graz airport to pick up our van and waited twenty more minutes for our final participant arriving from München.
Although originally a wreck and relic tour was scheduled for this afternoon, we decided to head to Zeltweg instead to see if we could catch some arrivals. As most of these already arrived on Wednesday, we only saw some rehearsals from outside the base. At 7PM we checked in at our hotel in Graz and went to an Asian all you can eat restaurant. At about 9PM we were back in the hotel and went for a good night’s sleep as we would leave the next day at 5.30AM to Zeltweg again.
