Organized every two years by airfield owner
and warbird enthusiast Tom van der Meulen and supported by an incredible
team of helpers and volunteers, the Oostwold airshow has now firmly established
itself as the foremost warbird airshow in Holland. Oostwold airfield is
located in the north of Holland, close to the German border and hence
many enthusiasts from across the border find their way to the event as
|In it’s ninth edition the airshow is clearly
going form strength to strength bringing together a great variety of acts
from wingwalking to high performance solo and formation aerobatic acts and
the main historic aircraft teams from the Low Countries putting up many
elsewhere unseen formation displays. Add to this a great line up of WWII
warbirds and you’re in for a party!
The OV-10 Bronco was paired
with the Dutch Thunder Yak aerobatic team flying three Yak-52s, providing
a few unusual formation passes before the start of the Bronco solo display.
There were many highlights. The unique Fokker Four team, a four aircraft
aerobatic formation display with ancient Fokker S11 trainer aircraft,
deserve a special mention, as does the one hour warbird only block with
several P40s, Mustangs and culminating in a not soon to be forgotten four
ship Spitfire display.
