Balkan-tastic! || Hometown Traffic

Hello! Zdravo!


Welcome back to another one of my #screenshots-and-videos topic! Today, I’m sharing some photos that I got yesterday during my balkan groups’ event! It was an absolute dream come true to see my home airport, Belgrade have so much traffic. It puts a smile to your face, Really! @AviatorAlex, @Alexian61, @NeperQiell and I put in a lot of effort, and seeing all of our home towns so busy was an extraordinary experience! It took so long to make the event, so we hope that you guys enjoyed it as much as we did making it!

Me landing at Bucharest as a long line for takeoff waits anxiously for me (Greased it!)



@AviatorAlex, me, and @Alexian61 at the gates at Sofia preparing for our final leg to Belgrade



A lot of action art Belgrade towards the end of the day. Ironically, I had the longest hold ever at my home airport! Who would’ve thought!



And now, the image that will forever be kept with me! The Balkans are busy for once In the IF skies!

Looks great! I like the perspectives and how you managed to fit so many different aircraft in.

It’s always great to see your own home region active for once :)

I love the screenshots! It was a really fun event and we really did our job the way we were supposed to. I’m still a bit sad I couldn’t land with you at Belgrade, but for the rest, it was really enjoyable!

Although some airports were difficult to operate expeditiously, IFATC tried our best!

Happy flying!

Indeed. I took LROP around this time yesterday and the runway exits for 08R are an absolute pain. Was lucky enough to have the amazing @Edivan_dcds on approach though and he gave me plenty of spacing.

Yeah, LYBE and LROP aren’t the easiest airports to control, LYBE needs more spacing between arrivals and LROP has only a 90 degrees exit for 08R that sometimes require a back taxi. Anyways was quite funny

@anon99845028 and I were also at LROP at 1900z approx. was funny tagging on the Balkans

Thanks Balkan team!
