BIAS 2015 attracted some very nice aircraft with the Pakistani Il-78 and Super Mushshak and the A-10s arguably being the star items. The show was opened by a parade comprising of three Pumas, four Lancers, four IAR99s and a C-27. During the day twelve out of the 26 remaining Lancers could be seen and the sky was full of Lancers during the day. Four Lancers performed during the opening flypast with four aircraft (5724, 6207, 6487 and 6824) two Lancers (6487 and ….) performed in an air policing exercise with the An-30, two SOCAT Pumas, a MedEvac Puma and the Interior Ministry Puma. Four aircraft (172, 6518, 6840, 9516) took part in the role demo and three solo demonstrations were flown by 6824 in the morning, 6807 in the afternoon and 9516 after 21:15u during which a lot of flares were spent which was spectacular as the show lasted until sunset. The Esc.711 and 6807 from Esc.861 operated from nearby Otopeni. The four IAR99s performed twice in poor weather during the role demo together.
