    Today the most unfortunate holiday has turned out in all years. The air program was heavily compressed. We hoped that "Rus" would arrive, but it didn't work out. Colleagues from Bashkiria arrived, but for some reason they were not allowed to show aerobatics. I hope next year everything will be more fun in terms of aviation.

      It is a pity that the day spent at the DOSAAF "Frolovo" airfield was excluded from the festival program. It was a very entertaining event.

        Did not agree on the price of the issue. Without revealing the details, I can say in general terms: DOSAAF requested an unbearable amount for the holiday.
        But this time it turned out so crumpled. Not always everything goes smoothly. The previous years were great, I hope next year will be better too.
