Zadar 30/5/20: Croatian International Air Show

Post by Zonan »

I found that no thread was running for the Croatian Air Show yet, so let's start one here.
On 30th May 2020, Zadar will host the inaugural Croatian International Military Air Show, which is not only attractive, but is also of manifold importance for the Croatian Air Force, the Croatian Armed Forces, Zadar and all of Croatia
So far I couldn't find a lot of info on participants, but what we do know is:
All planes will take off from and land at the 93rd air base (Zadar Air Base / Airport).
The show will take place near the river of Zadar.
Up to 450 participants and 100 aircraft are expected to participate in the show.

I'm not sure if there will be any static display, but most likely not as the show will not take place at the air base.

Flying will be:
- Saab 105 solo display, Austrian Air Force
- F-16AM solo display, Belgian Air Force
- Red Devils display team, 4x SF260 Marchetti, Belgian Air Force
- Bell 206B, Croatian Air Force
- OH-85D, Croatian Air Force
- Mi-8TV / Mi-171SH, Croatian Air Force
- Zlin 242, Croatian Air Force
- PC-9M, Croatian Air Force
- AT-802 A/F, Croatian Air Force
- CL-415, Croatian Air Force
- Wings of Storm display team, 5x PC-9M Turboprop, Croatian Air Force
- MiG-21, Croatian Air Force
- F-16 solo display, Danish Air Force
- Patrouille de France display team, 10x Alpha Jet, French Air Force
- PC-9M solo display, Slovenian Air Force
- Patrouille Suisse display team, 6x Northrop F-5E Tiger II, Swiss Air Force

In a press statement also a static was mentioned. It wasn't clear though whether that also is going to include aircraft, or "just" verhicles (as the army and navy will also be presenting themselves)...

I really hope it will be possible to take some pics on the base because there will be backlit during the flying displays next to the city...

No visiting to the base it seems...
I don't know what spotting is like outsidr the base, but nobody is getting on the base if I understand it correctly.

"Zbog sigurnosti letenja i drugih organizacijskih razloga, u okviru CROIMAS 2020 nije predviđen ulazak posjetitelja u Vojarnu “Pukovnik Mirko Vukušić” / 93. Krila HRZ.""

Google translate says:

"For reasons of flight safety and other organizational reasons, no visitor entry to the Barracks "Colonel Mirko Vukusic" / 93rd Wing of the HRZ is foreseen under CROIMAS 2020."

I was there in 2016, on the 32/22 it is perfect for spotting i've had no troubles with local law, however you will never know with a airshow going on.
If you go there there is a possability for morning spotting and afternoon but you have to reposition yourself Position 2 and 6.

Not suprisingly...postponed for 2021:
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Damir Krsticevic has announced that the international airshow, scheduled to take place on Statehood Day, May 30, will be postponed to next year as well as the acquisition of the new fighter jets to replace the MiG-21s.
