Fête Aérienne 2022 - Aerodrome La Ferté-Alais / France
Update: 2022/07/14 by Robert Kysela / CHK6
Every year on the Whitsun weekend, aviation enthusiasts have a must-attend event that draws thousands of fans from all over Europe to brave the nerve-wracking traffic jams of Paris to attend one of the most successful and best events on continental European soil – we are talking, of course, about the Fête Aérienne in La Ferté-Alais, a few kilometres south of Paris. After this event was cancelled in 2020 due to Corona and had to be postponed to the end of August in 2021, the crowds were particularly high this year. More than 21,000 aviation enthusiasts visited the Aerodrome Cerny, even though the weather forecast for the weekend was anything but rosy. Fortunately, the spectators were not disappointed and even though it rained at least 100 times, the sun came out every now and then and provided a fascinating backdrop with the dark storm clouds in the background.
