Aerial performers from 22 countries participated in the International Radom Air Show over the weekend. More than 160,000 people came to see what is one of the largest air shows in Europe.

This year’s air show commemorated the 100-year anniversary of the Polish Air Force. 150 aircraft took to the skies during the event. Despite the bad weather, organizers managed to fulfil everything that had been planned.

“It was a real treat for aviation lovers. The shows were great and safe,” said the general coordinator of the Air Show, Krzysztof Żabicki. He also added that the audience left the event extremely satisfied.
