The past 2015 was a very
difficult year for me and the Homepage
of WINGS-AVIATION. In my main Job I was confronted
with a huge workload which was not maintainable with the personnel
resources we had. Unfortunately this workload could only be handled
by doing excessive overtime. Therefore the resources for
WINGS-AVIATION were extremely limited, also considering the reduced
Staff of WINGS-AVIATION.
WINGS-AVIATION didn’t make the progress in 2015 that I expected and
which I think is necessary.
For 2016 the situation looks far brighter. The workload
is now down to a manageable level and more
again available for WINGS-AVIATION.
The first report, from Urs Schnyder, will feature the South
African Air Force Museum flying days
at Zwartkop Air Base. The second report comes from Thailand,
here Chakrit Samithian was able to visit
see a small Air Show of the RTAF at Khorat Air Base, and
- even more interesting - a live firing exercise at Chaibadan.
Guido Bühlmann will publish the third part of his Antonov AN-2
For the summer
we will visit the Air Show at La Ferté in France and some Air
Shows in the UK.
It's the goal of WINGS-AVIATION
for 2016 to
again present the readers
with interesting information about Aviation.
Sincerely Michael E. Fader
