My insatiable appetite for aviation was well satisfied at the Wings Over Baltics Airshow 20/21 July 2019 which was held at the Latvia / Jurmala Airport. The show fulfilled my senses with many incredible performances and demonstrations that were enhanced with the wonderful noise of these flying babes. I especially enjoyed the bomb effect of the F16, it was quite amazing and one of the highlights for me.
After the mind-blowing success of the show last year, Wings Over Baltics Airshow 2018, the second edition of the Baltics was a much-anticipated aviation event - Wings Over Baltics Airshow 2019! I’ve commented very openly like this because the event had all the right elements for an air show. Sometimes at these types of shows you feel like you are going to the cinema and see an overload of advertisements and of course you lose your excitement, but this is the main point that makes this event stand out among the other airshows that I’ve experienced before. This is not an exhibition it is truly a 100% knock-your-socks-off airshow!
The event hosted more than 20 000 aviation enthusiasts for both show days. That was also fantastic as most of these people now have made great memories and the kids may be the most important detail here, these kids who have experienced the spark of excitement will be the future pioneers of aviation. They have new dreams and ideas ignited by the sights and sounds of the airshow, imagining many new possibilities and reaching for new targets in their lives.
Let’s see the show:
More international and local display teams and jaw dropping solo performances from the best in tge business:

Sky Zoo Museum
The Air Museum "Sky Zoo" has been established at the airport "sky zoo", which is currently displaying aircraft such as as-40, an-2, su22m4, Pzl T-11 spark, helicopter mi-24 which are painted in "animal print colors" and is located at the Jurmala airport. People have the opportunity to find out about the history of the airport, see the airport transformation, and familiarize themselves with the future development plans of the airport. In the «Sky Zoo» territory people can find such points of interests such as: • Tower • Runway • Caponiers • Hangars • Technics of engineering • Technical department • Exhibits of museum planes.
Even for me, it’s hard to express all there is to see with words. I hope that I’ve share my feelings of excitement with you, so that you are interested in going to see, feel and hear the thrill and passion next year so that we can share the same atmosphere as aviation fans. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so really the best thing I can do is to share pictures.
I can’t give the same effect of the BMW M5 vs. L39C race, F-16 Falcon power , Baltic Bees Jet Team L39C x7 dance , Jurgis Kairys Solo crazy show (he is 67 years old ), Team Orlik x4 ballet, JAS 39 Gripen kidding with sky and all others.
Double the Speed. Double the Power, Double the Adrenaline!
