Aviation Bucket List

Earlier today Huw Hopkins (aviation photographer) posted on Twitter that he was working on a Aviation Bucketlist. Seemed like a great idea so I decided to make a little list myself. It consists of airshows and places I’d like to visit; planes I like to see and things I’d like to do. It’s not ‘the’ list. It’s changeable; things can be added or things can get crossed out if I did them.

If I had the time and/or money, I would definitely go for all of them…


Oshkosh EAA Airventure

A trip on an aircraft carrier

Iceland (I’ve seen some real nice movies of flying above volcano’s, landing on ice, …)

New-Zealand (Warbirds, lot’s of them and an amazing scenery.)


Russian military planes; I don’t care what… (Flying)

Swordfish (A2A)

B29 (Flying)

Lancaster (A2A)
