Some pictures I took:

(I won't post too many, the Internet is full of pictures of combat aircraft anyway. I usually took photos of aircraft when civilians were nearby due to the crowd but at least it shows the size of these birds)

T-28 Trojan:

Bell Cobra:

Was this a real unit?:

Looks funny from this angle:

Bo-105 anti-tank helicopter:

http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x148/Rammjaeger1983/DSC00217.jpg

(Maybe I'm a coward but I guess if I had to fly this little bugger in a combat zone I would stay away even from enemy infantry, let alone tanks.)

Specifications:

Romanian Mig-21:

(AFAIK these were all upgraded by an Israeli company)

Romanian IAR 330 Puma attack helicopter:

Swiss Pilatus PC-6:

(Many air forces used or still use this type, even the USAF, so it is either a brilliant design or the Swiss have an effective way of bribing state officials)

The "aux tank" on the F-4F is in fact a travel pod, and the PC-6 wears austrian markings, not swiss markings http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

The swiss markings look quite similar, but they use a white cross instead of a white triangle http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


Oh, and the truck is a "Barkas" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Two lamentations from my last trip to Hungary: missing the Laibach concert in Sopron, and the Kecskemet Air Show. Lucky people got rained on! We suffered thru the hottest weather on record in Hungary, and we're from New Mexico!

Our friend there had free entry tickets for us, and said he could get me a ride on one of the Hungarian Air Force jets. All I had to do was quit my job and stay a couple more weeks! Turns out that I quit my job a couple of weeks after returning home. We're moving to Budapest, so, I'm sure to be at the air show next year, and look forward to seeing a/c from the other side of the pond!

Wow, that's cool. I love Budapest. I came pretty close to staying in 2000, but in the end I came home to California. It worked out for the best, though. One of these days I need to make it back.

Nice pics.
Concerning the Bo 105 - check out what you can do with it:

I guess any tank crew had a hard time spoting one let alone hiting it.

Concerning the Bo 105 - needless to say that most choppers (even attack helicopters) should stay out of the range of even infantry weapons and fire their missles from a distance. This Vulnerability is the reason why the Apache Longbow features an extendable radar mast.

Cheers,

Jiro

Not on the active list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_Mari...s_aircraft_squadrons (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_Marine_Corps_aircraft_squadr ons)

But it might have been active earlier, or a reserve unit. Google search came up empty.

I've seen them in combat training, shooting up stuff, rockets and guns firing down range. Pretty impressive watching them dart around hills, popping up out from behind trees to fire off a few rounds.
