Su-22M4 and Su-22UM3K at Świdwin Air Base.


Recommended Posts

Today I spent half a day at Świdwin Air Base in the fumes of jet fuel. At the invitation of my friend Darek I had the opportunity to closely look at the real exercises...

I love our Su-22 and this day was really unforgetable.

Wow!

I seriously envy you your access to active examples of this aircraft.

I arrived in the Czech Republic some years too late to see their Su-22s in any place other than museums.

Ancient history now, of course, but it's still staggering to those of us old enough to have served during the Cold War that pictures like this are so available on a forum like this. Incredible.

There is something beautiful about the SU-22

It's the same brand of beauty the Buccaneer has. Both aircraft have that brutal beauty that makes them look like you could fly them full tilt into a brick wall and they'd come out the other side unscathed. :wub:

Oh, yes, I felt extremely happy that day!

Nicely said.

This pictorial is a tribute to all peoples working at the base. In each place, I met very friendly peoples. They are very professional.

I'm glad you liked the pictures.
