On August 30, 2008 in the early morning the weather was going to be perfect for an aviation event, to which I went by train with my two sons. We arrived at the airport of the 23 Tactical Air Base relatively early, at 8.00. Everything was prepared here. We had the opportunity to see the landing of the last and largest exhibit, i.e. the transport An-26 from the 13th Transport Squadron in Balice. The festival was one of the events celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Polish Aviation. The event was prepared on a large scale, and considering that only Poland, and not an international one, it evokes greater respect. A typical family event, because all aircrafts have a white and red checkerboard. The enemies said that "it was nothing to watch." And here they were wrong. It was simply impossible to get bored at this festival. There is nothing to be ashamed of. You even have to be proud to be Polish.
