The sixth edition of the F-AIR was held during the second week of July. Although basically a commercial event, the weekend days were open to the general public. Obviously, without the military participating, the show would not have been half as big as it was. The show was blessed with great weather, beautiful aircraft, not to mention the girls. As the runway is lined north-south, taking pictures of the aerial demonstrations was best during the afternoon, if you had secured your private space along the rather narrow crowd line. The cramped space for static exhibits allowed for construction number taking, but taking decent photos was a different ballgame. However, our visitors’ passes allowed for access way before the general public so this could be solved with some patience. International participation consisted of USAF F-16s and RCAF CF-18s, with the latter clearly stealing the hearts of the Colombian public. Of course, these are just bonuses considering the interesting types of aircraft that could be witnessed, what to think of formations of four Broncos, or a KC-767 with four Kfirs? Beers served right at the fence line surely made up for the gaps in the air show schedule.
