Aircraft-Spotting during Air Events (under construction)

In this category we intend to deal with our visits to different airfields in the course of years staying outside the gates and fences , being certain that there would be lots of flying-activities , because Air Shows were organized , squadron-rotations or exercises were taking place et cetera.
