It`s that time of the year when everyone goes in holidays, right?! Oh, yes! Especially on this hot & humid August month, one of the most hottest month of the year, actually, of the past years. As almost everyone, we took some days off, jumped into the plane and flew to Romania, where the weather is a bit cooler and there is a summer rain from time to time. Yes!!! We love summer rain!
We landed in Bucharest, at Herni Coanda International Airport, not actually our destination, just a connection point between Larnaca and Suceava Airport, and then took a small plane directly to Suceava – “Ștefan Cel Mare” Airport, 10 minutes drive form our home town. Just after landing, we saw some fliers about an air show that will take place on 4th and 5th of August 2012, celebrating 50 years since opening.
“Waw!” I said to my beautiful Loredana – “Great opportunity to have a few professional photos taken, all these planes, all these colors, what do you think ?!”. She couldn’t agree more, so here we are back on 4th of August 2012, on “Ștefan Cel Mare” Airport, with a telephoto lens ready to capture the amazing moments made by guests of the air show.
No others then Jurgis Kairys, Acrobatic Yakers and the pilots from Hawks of Romania Team performed in front of more than 2000 people. Last time when I went to this sort of event, it was about 23 – 24 years ago, at the same airport, and I remember seeing almost the same number of people, but I was too young to remember the Hawks in the Sky.
The pilots performed amazing, and everyone was amazed about their capabilities and how they maneuver their planes. I was impressed by Jurgis Karis, a 60 + y.o. pilot, World Champion on Free Style, who made all of us hold our breath!
Well, enough talking, I will let you enjoy the photos!
