The Ejercito del Aire, Spanish air Force, celebrated its 75th anniversary with this major airshow coupled with a flypast the following day over central Madrid on Spain’s National Day. The organisation was a little disorganized. Early information announced the venue as Getafe, still in Madrid, but now home to the Airbus MRTT finishing centre. In mid summer this changed to Torrejon with its enormous ramp area normally populated with the VIP flight, the Canadair water bombers and 12 squadron with EF18 Hornets.
