Florennes Airshow - Arrivals,  22 June 2012

This year the Belgian International Airshow was held at Florennes Airbase in Southern Belgium. Just like the other events held in Belgium the last years the Belgian Air Component managed to  welcome some very nice highlights to Florennes Airbase.


As the weather forecasts for the weekend weren't very good and the photo opportunities during the show days aren't good either I decided to visit the arrival day of the airshow in stead. When I arrived at Florennes Airbase in the early morning the sky was clear, but within minutes a big cloud layer came overhead and it became very windy for the rest of the day. Luckily the we had some nice sunny spells as well. Today was also a spottersday on base, but this was definitely not worth the 40 euro's as the display line is on the wrong side, so back light all day long.


The highlights of this years airshow came from the Eastern part of Europe. Like the Two MiG-29s and a L-410 from Slovakia, no less than three Polish Su-22 Fitters, the Croatian display team Wings of Storm and the Hellenic F-16D.  (Click here for a log)
