On Saturday morning we left for Caransebes to take part in the Caransebes Airshow 2015. Although the weather did not look very promising, as it was pouring pretty hard at 07.00 a.m., we set towards our destination with the hope that the weather will improve. And the improvement occurred around 11 o’clock, when most of the clouds dissipated and the sun shared its light and warmth over us. Thus the planes began to roll on the runway. We enjoyed the evolution of the Mil Mi-17, Extra 300, Extra 330, Ikarus 42, Zlin 142, PZL 104 Wilga and the glider IS28 B2. Our patience was rewarded by the show prepared by the Hawks of Romania, The Pelicans and the Aviation Special Unit that performed an air rescue exercise.
This time we chose to show you the black and white version of the photographs taken at the airshow. The hold a special charm for us. We will let you take a look and judge for yourselves and, why not, tell us your opinion.
