You will not read about it in the Masonic-liberal media.

On August 22-23, 2015, another edition of the Air Show took place in Radom. The event was organized for the fourteenth time, but this year there were also two special reasons: the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and the centenary of the birth of the great pilot, General Stanisław Skalski. The Air Show at Radom Sadków Airport is the largest event of this type in the world. This year there were 250 aircraft, 350 foreign airmen and 180,000 spectators (another record in the history of the show). Someone will soon say that Air Show Paris or Farborught are bigger. But those events are fairs where contracts are signed and contracts are made, so this is commercial, not entertainment. Someone will say that behind the Big Water they are bigger. But there are no participants from 20 different countries of the world. And most importantly, it is the best party in the world. And this is not the opinion of an ordinary bread eater, but the opinion of the participants! The previous Air Show in 2013 was recognized as the best in the world. The current Air Show of 2015 has already been recognized as better than the previous one. Why? Because in the West, so stupid restrictions on noise standards have already been introduced that the participants do not even know if they have a chance to start. Is the "noise limit" exhausted or whether they will be caught yet. The fact is - it's loud. Because that is also the point. However, in Radom, it is already the norm that parents wear headphones (hearing protectors) to children, and adults use earplugs.

The main organizers: the Air Force and the City of Radom say - “Pękamy z pride? Yes, because there is something to be happy about and to be proud of. Air Show has been a brand of Radom for 15 years. This year's shows once again proved that Radom and the airport in Sadków are the best places to organize this type of event. We hope that we have shown that Radom is a great place to organize such shows. I talked to each of the teams that took part in our shows. They said it was the best Air Show they had the opportunity to attend. There were people here who travel all over the world and perform. For me, their assessment is the most important. " - assures Brigadier General Tomasz Drewniak, director of dynamic shows of Air Show 2015. "But because our shows are considered by them to be one of the best in the world, they gladly come back to us." - says Brigadier General Tomasz Drewniak.

This year, we had nearly 22 hours of air shows in Radom. We can add to this there are planes taxiing on the taxiways at the same time, which were preparing for the show or just finished it. Therefore, we can multiply these 22 hours by at least two. Because there was always something going on. I saw photojournalists who photographed almost simultaneously with two cameras. Planes in the air with a long lens, and machines that were taxiing with a short lens. And a lot of machines on the static display. There was no viewer who could see everything. Physically impossible. The organizers stuffed the program so much in the air that they had to refuse a few participants. All PPS (aircraft parking planes) were filled to the brim. The fuel service spent half a million liters of aviation fuel.

A bit about the absentees. This time, there were no Americans, Swedes, Ukrainians or Belarusians in Radom. We don't know if the party suffered from this? Judging by foreign opinions, it's not. However, such C-17 Globmaster, A-10, JAS-39 Grippen, Il-76 or Su-27 were interesting points of the show.

According to the official police report, 700 policemen watched over the safety of the participants and it was the quietest mass event in recent years. The police worked closely with the Military Police, Fire Brigade, Municipal Police, Border Guard, Ambulance Service (80 paramedics) and BOR. Thanks to many months of detailed preparations, the 2015 International Air Show turned out to be an organizational success. Organizing a police station turned out to be a good solution. Found cell phones, keys and documents were returned here. Even a backpack with documents and money, which turned out to be owned by a foreigner, was returned. “We have testified that we are honest people. It is also very important. " - said inspector Marek Świszcz.

The event was attended by representatives of 20 countries, according to other sources 19 countries. This discrepancy was due to the Baltic Bees group. The group is Latvian, and representatives of two countries fly there.

10 aerobatic groups presented themselves in the skies of Radom: 1 White-Red Sparks - Poland. 2 Orlik - Poland. 3 Frecce Tricolori from Italy. 4 Patrouille Suisse - Switzerland. 5 Patrulla Aguila from Spain. 6 Baby Blue from Denmark. 7 Baltic Bees from Latvia. 8 Royal Jordanian Falcons from Jordan. 9 Spanish Colibri Patrulla Aspa helicopter group. 10 Żelazny group.

This year there were many stars in the sky in Radom. We'll start with the best aerobatic team in the world. This is the Frecce Tricolori (Tricolor Arrows) team from Italy belonging to the Italian Air Force. The group was officially founded in 1961 and used F-86 Sabers. In 1964, the machines were replaced with native Fiat G.91 planes. Since 1979, the team has flown Aermacchi MB-339 version of the PAN. The team performed shows on nine planes. On August 28, 1988, the biggest disaster in the history of an air show took place. At the US Air Force base in Ramstein-Miesenbach, three of the group's planes collided, one of them fell on the audience watching the shows, and 70 people died as a result of the crash. After this tragedy, the regulations on performing aerial acrobatics during shows with the participation of the public were tightened. The band is distinguished by very dense streaks. Currently, the team presents itself on 10 aircraft.
