About the meeting

17 airplanes from Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, United Kingdom and Sweden participated. During a 4 day event we had a wonderful time meeting our old friends and colleagues and exploring Southern Poland. After this trip I definitely changed my mind about this country. Being a Lithuanian, I used to see Poland as a transit country with terrible roads and a few big cities. In this trip I found Poland’s beautiful nature (we had a trip to Karkonosze mountains) and wonderful little cities (Jelenia Gora, Karpacz).

The full story about the meeting is placed under the category “10th AN-2 meeting“.

The story is divided into the following parts:

  • The first day (A flight from Ketrzyn to Jelenia Gora, Arrival)
  • The second day (A trip to Karkonosze mountains, and an evening party at Chata Wolanska.)
  • The third day (A joint flight over Jelenia Gora and Karkonosze mountains, a trip to Jelenia Gora, closing party)
  • The last day (A flight back to Ketrzyn)

All of the participant airplanes can be seen in this post.

Originally, I started a blog about this meeting at http://an2meeting.blogspot.com/2006/08/10th-2-meeting-jelenia-gora-poland.html in 2006. However, in 2009 I decided to integrate it into one blog, to have everything in one place.
