Airpower airshow at Zeltweg air base in Austria, has to be the biggest airshow in the Central Europe. I’ve been a regular visitor since 2003 and this year’s show was the best and biggest yet – almost 300.000 people attended the 2-day show and more than 15 million euro were earned. Talk about the economy 😉 I will try to present some of the feeling in chronological order. I hope you’ll enjoy the pics!

I managed to get the press photo accreditation but unfortunately due to total mess in organizations and some irrational decisions I remained in the crowd and tried to enjoy the programme as much as I could. Unfortunately as has happened before, and this airshow was no exception, it is of utter importance to make the airshow last 8hrs – it’s ok at RIAT but not here with such a small list of participating aircraft… Why not make a 4 hour airshow and that one packed with nice flying displays without pauses? And of course Mother Nature had her own plans for that fateful Friday and supplied all kinds of weather – from bright sunshine to heavy downpour; and everything in between and thus making photography quite challenging.

Anyway here’s the first  part of my report – some of the civilian aircraft on display
