20 August Air Parade and Air Race – Budapest

Unfortunately I got sick, so I could not attend the events this year, but Balint was there and tomorrow he will show us some nice pictures and will give us a short report about the air race.

In the meantime I decided to share some older pics with you. These ones were taken on 1st May 2004, the day when Hungary joined the EU. As a part of the whole day events, a Malev 737 flew through over the Danube in Budapest. This was the last 737-400 in the Malev fleet as Malev exhcanged the whole 737 fleet to brand new NGs: 600s, 700s and 800s.

The pictures were taken by a friend of mine, a very good aircraft photographer, Viktor Laszlo. You can see many of his pictures on

In the meantime I received fresh pictures about a Malev Boeing 767 flying through over the Danube on 20 August 2007 in Budapest. Captain Zambo and Captain Borovszki flew through 200 m above the Danube in front of around 1 million spectators. Quite an amazing sight.

Photos were taken again by Viktor Laszlo. Thanks for them!
