Aerobatics, chicken and chips at the 'Airpower' flight show

On 28 June 2013, I visited the 'Airpower' flight show in Zeltweg in Styria, Austria. It was the first time ever that I visited a mass event of such big proportions. We didn't park in Zeltweg; ohhh nooo! We parked in another town - don't ask me after the name; perhaps I walked through two towns, I don't know. Fact is that I had enough time to sniff country air on my way to the flight fields while I worked on my sporty thoughts for overcoming the distance. The nearer I came to the start and landing fields of the Airpower event, the more the country air was mixed with airplane scent. Other notes which filled seductively my nose were chicken and chips - which I couldn't resist. Find photos from the two-day Airpower event (28 and 29 June) on
