    Caslav is already upgraded to NATO standard with overruns at both ends...

    If you look at Pardubice for example, you will see that the arrester barriers are not on the RWY but on the grass as there are no overruns build yet !
    The Eastblock airfields didn't have overruns...

    I wonder if they will build the overruns at Pardubice? Is there an advantage of a tarmac overrun instead of just using the grass?

    REF,

    If the soil is hard, there is no problem at all

    I heard that Pardubice will have overruns too !
    Idem for all other military Eastblock Air Bases that will be maintained.
    They have to comply to basic NATO standards

    Caslav doesn't have standard NATO approach but RWY32 has an ALS-1 (Cat.1) and RWY 14 a MALS...
    Caslav is civil & military now... we can expect a Cat.3 approach later for RWY32 ?

    Maybe there's one in this lot? Would be great if anyone can ID these. You can guess I know nowt about planes. I left my own camera at home by accident and bought a used camera an hour before the show and didn't quite master it in time to take any airbound shots.

    Tam, thy are some brilliant photos, great to see something different. Love the colour schemes on the Grippen (First photo) and the F-16 (the one after the Grippen). Great stuff.

    Thanks REF - it even had a fluffy tiger-striped seat cover (no fluffy dice though).
