National Aerobatic Championships at Malmi Airport, 6 July 2019

During the years we have visited the airport not more than perhaps 5-6 times. This week I happened to see an ad about the aerobatic championships on Facebook. I said to my husband, hey lets go. We were unable to go there on Thursday/Friday when the main championships were held. But, there still was a lot of activity today. Also we wanted go there while it still is there as it sooner or later may be gone. The airport is 80 years old. One of the first airports in Helsinki. The future of Helsinki-Malmi Airport is threatened by the City of Helsinki’s intention to turn it into a residential area.” Good thing is, no binding decisions have been made yet. Thumbs up the city in the end will decide to let the airport stay where it is. “In March 2016 Helsinki-Malmi Airport was selected as one of the 7 Most Endangered Cultural Heritage Sites in Europe.”

As always, we really enjoyed the visit. Here are some photos from today’s visit. Unfortunately my lens refused to take any decent photos of the small planes high up in the sky !National Aerobatic Championships at Helsinki-Malmi Airport, 6 July 2019 20190706_112856_HDRNational Aerobatic Championships at Helsinki-Malmi Airport, 6 July 2019 IMG_7875CNational Aerobatic Championships at Helsinki-Malmi Airport, 6 July 2019 IMG_7878CNational Aerobatic Championships at Helsinki-Malmi Airport, 6 July 2019 IMG_7886CNational Aerobatic Championships at Helsinki-Malmi Airport, 6 July 2019 20190706_110442_HDRCNational Aerobatic Championships at Helsinki-Malmi Airport, 6 July 2019 IMG_7901CNational Aerobatic Championships at Helsinki-Malmi Airport, 6 July 2019 20190706_112610_HDRC
