A small open day was organised at Graf Ignatievo to celebrate
the annual Bulgarian ‘Children’s Day’. The static contained just
three aircraft (a MiG-21bis, MiG-21UM and MiG-29), but the
flying display was a bit better with a MiG-21bis, MiG-21UM
and MiG-29UB in the first wave and three MiG-29s and
MiG-29UB in the second. All aircraft used the taxi-track in front
of the public, so that was good for the photographers. The
flying consisted of some touch-and-goes and a dogfight between
two MiG-29s at high altitude. The Bulgarian aircraft were
already enough reason to pay a visit to this small open day, but
the show also had a very nice extra surprise: a Mi-24 of Mali.
This chopper was moved out of one of the maintenance
hangars and made a few engine runs, probably for a predelivery
inspection.
