Article's tools:

Tens of thousands flock every year to Góraszka near Warsaw to see the largest air show in Poland. This year's Góraszka Air Picnic will take place on the weekend of June 6-7.

One of the main attractions will be the Cobra attack helicopter, used in the Vietnam war. A Polish air force MiG-29 fighter will perform a special show. The event will also feature the legendary Supermarine Spitfire fighters used in World War II. Such aircraft were flown by pilots of the No. 303 Polish Fighter Squadron.

Providing thrills if not spills will be aerobatics champions including Jurgis Kairys and Robert Kowalik, an eight-time Poland champion. Spectacular maneuvers will be performed by Su-31 and Extra-300 planes. As each year, the legendary Żelazny group will perform a display of team aerobatics. The pilots say they have a new program to surprise Góraszka visitors.

Alongside the air show, visitors to Góraszka will be entertained by music concerts and family competitions at an amusement park. Fans of vintage cars can see an exhibition organized by the Automobilista magazine.
