The traditional Radom International Air Show expected by all aviation enthusiasts for 2017 will not take place. Over the past few weeks, some controversy has occurred between the President of Radom city and the Ministry of Defense regarding the organization of the event.

The President Radosław Witkowski declared the armed forces did not support the city in the organization of a big event. The Minister of Defense denied this statement. 

However, at Radom airport, will be celebrated two days of flight on August 26-27. The Air Show dedicated to the 85th Anniversary of "Challenge 1932" will include a dynamic show with over 100 planes and helicopters, a big parade with more than 80 aicraft and a static display with more than 30 aircraft.

The "Challenge 1932" was a contest dedicated to tourist aircraft that took place between August 12-28, 1932 in Berlin, Germany. The polish pilot Franciszek Żwirko won that competition.

The public will be able to admire many Polish military acraft: MiG-29, Su-22, F-16, C-295, C-130, M-28, TS-11, PZL-Mi-24, W-3, Mi-8/17, Mi-14, W-3 PL, W-3, BSR Orbiter, W-3 SAR, G-550, SH-2G and foreign aicraft: Italian F-2000 Eurofighter and M-346, Spanish F-2000 Eurofighter, Austrian Saab J105 OE, Ukranian Su-27 and An-26, Romanian MiG-21, Dutch F-16, German F-2000 Eurofighter, Lithuanian C-27, US B-52, B-1 and AWACS.

According to the official program the Spanish, Ukranian, Austrian, Italian, Romanian and US aircraft will fly. It is not clear who will perfom a solo demo display or only flypasts. Surely the Italian Eurofighter and M-346 fighter jets assigned to Reparto Sperimentale Volo Demo Squadron in those days will be involved in the main national Jesolo Air Show.

This reduced event will be a preview of the great International Air Show scheduled for 2018.
