Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Today we visited Batajnica. Until now it is not too good for photo's but we hope for better 2morrow. My goal, the MiG21 flying, was realised so I am happy! Hopefully more pics tomorrow.

This is not good for you? I guess you were on the base as press because only tomorrow is a spectators day. i doubt that you can get so close to the runway then?

I am not a wyner, but I guess I had a few lucky shots (24mp, through 2mtr fence). For today this is the only flying pics we were able to shoot. We were late :( and in the morning there was some other stuff flying. There where thousands of people on the base today. Tomorrow there will be ten of thousands. I heard that today was only for family but I am not sure.
After the flying we waited for most families to leave so we were able to do most of the static without people. This should be possible tomorrow too. The whole press thing is a farse and we took the pics from the fence from which you will be able to do tomorrow so that is good news.

Make sure you bring a case of beer, or box or whatever to stand on from town/hotel/bar!

Yes well with all the advertising in town I guess it's going to be crowded. And hot too! Well let's see it is promising to be a nice show!

Today we had a great day. We took a risk by not going on the base but looking for a spot near one of the 2 runways. We were lucky, most a/c came in on the runway we were at;

Thanks for all the nice comments, after all the saturday stress the show turned out very nice.
Today I found a spot in takeoff (outside base) and most a/c left (including the 5 Orao's). I arrived a bit late but others took some great shots, also of an Iraqi Mi.171 that was flying around. I can only show my bad cropped version:

A AW.139 came in, is it Italian Government?

Hey Stipjes,

After checking the internet, the helo we saw at Belgrade this afternoon is indeed reported as a FIAT group toy. In fact, someone suggested you should read the a/c serial I-TIAF backwards.... :lol:

You also mentioned you missed the Gazelles on most of the occasions this weekend. I'm surprised at that, because on sunday there were a few great passes that even the Legging King would have appreciated:

Here a few more from sunday:

I hope to see some posts by those who were on base during the airshow. Some of the solo a/c where taxiing towards the crowd and were stopped in front of the camera's. Please share some of those shots if you where there!

Greetz,
