Russian Knights at Kecskemet, Hungary airshow 2013 had great display. Unfortunately, this year we will not see airshow there, because HuAF is very busy this year. They are doing air policing missions in Slovenia and the Baltics also, and get the close air support – CAS ability of course outside of their main mission, protection of the Hungarian airspace.
The airshow, that has now 14 years of history, has established a great reputation and appreciation throughout Europe as well as around the World. In 2013 it was the 9th time that an airshow was held at Kecskemét, and if we take into account all the country’s airshows, then it was the 14th time an international airshow took place in Hungary. One of the biggest open air events in Hungary, it has attracted more than 100000 spectators, but the future of it is still not visible. The Hungarian Defense Ministry told Airshowinfo.hu that in next year there won’t be an air show, it is possible in 2016 at the latest.
