Large crowds gathered over the weekend to witness Greece’s greatest air show, near the Tanagra Air Base in Athens, catching spectacular aerobatic displays during Athens Flying Week Tanagra International Show 2019.
The impressive air show with international participants offered an aerobatics spectacle to thousands of aviation enthusiasts, who came along to witness what is considered one of the major air shows in Europe.
This year, 25 display teams from 11 countries showed off their takeoffs and landings, incredible maneuvers, virtual dog fights, and stunning acrobatics with highly skilled pilots in action.
The popular annual event featured flying shows, educational programs and private aviation conferences, drawing in tens of thousands of spectators. For the first time in Greece, the fleet of the Flying Bulls was also on display, designed during World War II. And, as always, the Greek Air Forces presented their magnificent air show.
According to the organisers, the annual two-day aviation event has boasted more than 410,000 spectators from Greece and abroad throughout its seven-year course.
The event also included a trade show, aeromodelling demonstrations, and training workshops.
