EU summit Bratislava

Anyone got a log for 16/09/16? Suggestions where I search if not.
Most frustrating at being able to see and not read off due to distance because of security arrangements.
Location: Dunoon,Argyll.

Thank you Sparta42.
Security really was tight wasn't it.
I was in the car park at Decathelon and the police did a drive by to have a look.(they were obviously impressed by my new trainers)
There was a Greek Air Force Embraer but I couldn't read it.
Mi-171s OM-BYU (When was it re-registered?) and B-1786 were outside with the 2 others in the hangar.
I didn't note the Mi-2s under the tarpaulin or the 2 Mi-8s as I felt I had overstayed my welcome but I don't think they have changed.
Their new Bell 425 OM-BYD,looking sinister in its black colours was flying a lot but no sign of the other one in police colours
Didn't see their new Airbus but the 2 unmarked Fokkers were parked not far from the Tu-154

Security isn't a dirty word! Chatted to the group at the terminal and asked about the B747, apparently it and the others were over for a horse event and not part of the summit. One of them suggested I take a slow drive over to the industrial zone but don't take pictures.... took his advice and just logged what I could from the 'cover' of the car. Thought the ERJ was a Belgian, with an EU flag on the tail, but can't be sure. Not sure if the A319 was French or Italian, only made out 'Republic' on the forward fuselage. A frustrating day as you say, but Bratislava was a delight to walk around as the streets were practically empty.

Thats a good link.Thanks
Re security.
Your guys must have been a lot more civil than the ones I encountered. We didn't even get within a mile of the terminal They obviously didn't want to be there and were not even prepared to speak to us other than telling us where to go!
My son is fluent in Slovak and even that didn't work.
We went round the back to the Ivanka side and it was all taped off but at least we could get a good look in.
Saw A6-MMM at Glasgow last month.some runabout.
