Tour Updates

April 2022 Update

Hello Everyone,

 

I’ll start this Update with a mention of the taking of payments – or not, as the case may be.  Eton have a new booking/accounting system which should be automatic but it currently isn’t.  As we have currently to contact you to take your debit/credit card details this is proving a labour-intensive job, coupled with a reduced number of staff.  You will be contacted, but in the meantime please bear with us; there is no need for you to contact us in the interim.

 

The current state of play of each tour is as follows:

 

4 - 17 May: USA - ALASKA. With 24 bookings this tour is 99% full; room for 1 or 2 more only. Finalising the optional flights including a R-4D6, Beech 90, Grand Caravan, Kodiak and various floatplanes. Also glacier landing and take-off. Sadly the C-117 is tech.

 

11 - 16 May: GREECE - NTM.

Updated, costed, itinerary now on our website.  With over 20 bookings already, if you plan on going with us you need to book as soon as possible: our hotel is nearly full due to the Greek holiday season.

 

10 - 16 June: NORWAY.

Costed itinerary now on our website. Stavanger/Sola 2-day airshow plus all major aviation museums.  You will see a good number of fabulous WWII Luftwaffe aircraft, some exceedingly rare and possibly the largest number outside of Germany. Scandinavia is expensive, Norway is expensive: prices will not be coming down any time soon!

 

18/22 - 26 June: GERMANY - TOP SECRET WWII SITES & /OR ILA AIRSHOW W/E BERLIN.

Peenemunde, Larz, Rechlin, Finov/Eberswalde, Cottbus. And much, much more. Need more bookings in order to go ahead.

 

28 June – 1 July: TURKEY – EXERCISE ANATOLIAN EAGLE.

One of the most popular events: the incredible Exercise Anatolian Eagle – the costed itinerary is now on our website. Includes Press Day and Spotter’s Day. Final arrangements to be announced by the Turkish Air Force, however, we are taking bookings.

 

4 - 7 July: GREECE - PHANCON 2022.

Organised by the F-4 Phantom II Society, this annual event is the first ever Phancon to be held in Europe. Admittance on to Andravida AB is strictly restricted to members of the Society, who then issue you a Pass. Details on the itinerary. Already receiving bookings. Itinerary with price is now on our website.

 

24 July – 1 August: USA – OSHKOSH (Tour 204)

Staying – for the last time after over 40 years at the UWO in Oshkosh - this tour is now full with over 50 enthusiasts looking forward to a very special ‘Oshkosh’: one of the ‘themes’ this year is the 75th Anniversary of the USAF with fly-bys, static and participation in the daily airshow.

 

24 July – 1 August: USA OSHKOSH (Tour 224)

This year, for the first time ever, we have a second ‘overflow’ group; staying in Green Bay and travelling to/from Wittman Field at Oshkosh each day. Places available. With the ‘cost of living’ price-rises, perhaps this a good time to attend the EAA’s “AirVenture”.

 

31 August – 4 September: AUSTRIA – AIR POWER 2022

One of the most popular airshows of the year for all European enthusiasts. Held in the beautiful mountains of Austria and Zeltweg AB.  Our fabulous hotel is only a 30-minute drive away. Places still available.

 

September: POLAND – AIR BASES

With the current situation in Ukraine this tour has been put back to September.  Very popular, with a good number of bookings despite no set dates.  To be sure of one of the limited number of places available, we strongly recommend you book now: option to cancel when the costed itinerary is released.

 

28 September – 4 October NEW DATES: GREENLAND

Be on the first ever aviation group to Greenland. We need 3 more bookings to reach the minimum number required.

 

29 September – 8 October: BULGARIA – WRECKS & RELICS

A repeat of our very successful tour before Covid arrived.  With Ivo as your guide the tour will be a mixture of new and old locations around the country, discovering mainly Cold War Soviet wrecks and relics. Dates to be confirmed. Special price for doing both Wrecks & Relics and Air Bases tours.

 

9 - 17 October: BULGARIA – AIR BASES & AIR FORCE DAY

We are now working with our contact in the Bulgarian Air Force for base visits. We plan to be in the country on the 16th: Air Force Day. Tour is very popular, with a good number of bookings.  To be sure of one of the limited number of places available, we strongly recommend you book now: option to cancel when the costed itinerary is released. Dates to be confirmed. Special price for doing both Air Bases and Wrecks & Relics.

 

3 – 8 November: USA – NELLIS AIRSHOW

We understand that this year’s Aviation Nation Airshow will be the USAF’s official event celebrating their 100th Anniversary, and, as such, it is expected that there will be a greater number of military aircraft participating.

 

Best wishes,

 

Graham.
