Mig-21 heaven, Campia Turzii - Romania

Post by MarkS » Wed Dec 06, 2017 5:38 pm

Hi all,

With the airshow season well and truly over for the year, I thought I'd try and brighten up the dull days with a look back to the open day at Campia Turzii in July.
After a few days travelling around Romania in search of W&R the Saturday saw Simmo and myself attending the airshow at Campia. Probably the most enjoyable airshow I've done in ages.A small event with the flying taking place in the morning, the afternoon was spent wandering around the Mig flight lines. Most of the flying was fast, low and very close to the crowd (Health and safety hasn't made it to Romania yet :) )We were lucky enough to be well in front of the crowd line and much of the positioning for the displays were right over us.A fantastic experience in a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. You could even get a flight in Puma !
Hope you enjoy,
Mark

P.S. There are a lot of pics......sorry about that

Great Set Mark had the pleasure of seeing the Romanian Mig21s at Lossiemouth a good few years ago in glorious weather.
Cheers.

Cracking set. Its a fantastic place to go and be close to the old MiG21s. The weather looks better than when I was there in 2015.
