Some real crackers there.  The old Soviet types are really the only aircraft I'd go out of my way to see in the air these days.

Better hurry up I suppose!

Radom has been on my "to do" list,for a while now-those Russian beasties are begining to get very rare,so will have to look at a visit in the next year or two.

The SU-27 looks mighty impressive. 8)

I'd totally agree with you there, I'd give my left arm to see a Su-17/22 in a display!

We had a 6 ship, a 2 ship airfield attack, a 2 ship roll demo and 1 on static :-)

Out Friday Dublin 05.20 via Frankfurt (for a day of dirty civils)- arrive Warsaw 22.00 then hire car drove 100km and stayed in Pionki about 25km east from Radom Airbase, Saturday on base parked up and got the free shuttle bus from the carpark, Sunday and Monday off base on the south side a farmer let everyone park in his field for 5 plz (1.20) on Sunday,  then home via Copenhagen to Dublin Tuesday morning, no problems with any driving after hearing loads of horror stories the Poles are really nice people and it is cheap.
