Hungary, Kecskemét Airshow 2021 – early news

Major General Nándor Kilián, Air Force Observer of the Command of the Hungarian Armed Forces gave an interview recently to the official site of the Hungarian Defence Forces. He talked mostly about the recent purchases and the future pilot training.

But the interviewer asked the Major General about this year’s airshow at Kecskemét, which was announced by the Defence Minister last year and was also confirmed to us not long ago by the Press Department of the Ministry of Defense.

Here is what he said for the airshow question

Understandably, there is a lot of uncertainty about the epidemic. According to our plans, we will hold the next international aviation day in Kecskemét on the 28-29th of august, which will also be a demonstration of military technology, so in addition to the Air Force, others will also be represented. I can’t tell too many specifics things yet, but some countries have certainly given feedback. Based on these, the United States is also expected to arrive with aircraft that the public has never seen in Hungary before. With their Su-35 aircraft, the Russian Knights (Russkkiye Vityazi) will almost certainly give a demonstration, but of course we also invited other demo teams. The organization is in full swing, which is not a small job, because the Hungarian Armed Forces will not only be an organizer, but also an executor. All of this has a whole new challenge to many, but we stand before it.
