    ^ Good news.

    - Brave Heart North 2010 - I gues this exercise will be held in Bulgaria this time, judging by the name.

    - 2x Su-25 and a C-27J Spartan on display at Kecskemet airshow(Hungary) - This will be interesting too, although BuAF is not very active in visiting international events lately.

    Yeap, as far as i know HAF will send some F-16s to Graf Ignatievo AB this year for another bilateral exercise, which is great. As for the Kecskemet airshow, it really will be intriguing , you don't see Frogfoots everyday i hope everything goes on plan this year, last one we were about to send some aircraft to Batjanica airshow but we cancel it on last moment due to financial problems.
