Airshow by Leaseweb Texel

Leaseweb Texel Airshow

It’s summer holiday. 6 weeks of time where kids don’t have to do anything… Well, just having the holiday. That’s all.
But it’s also time to do things which have never done before. What about an Airshow?

As I’m a great aviation fan and try to visit airbases as much as possible.
Someday my 8-year old son mentioned, after showing him some pictures of recent airbase visits, he wished he was there with me.
What a chance he had on his first day together with his dad, during this holiday. An airshow was planned on August 4th, just an hour and a half away!!

Did you ever hear a sound of a P51 Mustang? (turn up your sound)

The preparations

The event tickets, the overnight stay and the boat crossing were arranged easily.
Airshows can be very noisy, so some ear protection was required for the little guy as well.

After the show, the plan was to visit my parents up north so Yaz was with us as well. But having Yaz with us all day, would not be a good idea so we arranged a nice place to stay, close to the airport.

The show

After a good night sleep, eventually, we went to the airport and o dear……
Shops!!! However, it required some pushing not to by them all empty.
Quickly to the airstrip and wait for the show to start.

I mean, it was great to see all the shows. Unfortunately, some show had to quit early or didn’t start all due to (weather) circumstances. But did we see some good stuff.

What’s next?

In short, with regard to an airshow, the next one is already planned.  The Belgian Air Force Day.
A real air force base is very exciting of course and therefore the little guy is looking forward to it already.

Happy little guy, Airshow
Happy little guy. Everything worth it
