Foreign Airfield VisitPast Tours

Ceske Budejovice – Wednesday 4th September 2019 (John Tomlinson)

Not too early a start today, which was a pleasant change.
First of the day was another Ex military base and as expected, you can see a little bit of the field, but not much.

We were hoping to see a Gate Guard and a WFU An-2, which we easily saw, however as soon as we pointed a camera towards the field and the An-2, typical of the Ex Eastern block countires, an old lady came out of the guard house and started shouting to stop. However we were lucky in that an aircraft owner was opening his bunker hangar, which was near the guard house and he allowed us to go airside to visit him. The lady now calmed down and all was fine………
