AIR POWER 2022 - Hinterstoisser AB / Zeltweg / AUSTRIA
Update: 2022/09/27 by Robert Kysela / CHK6
It was exactly 25 years ago when Hinterstoisser air base, located in Zeltweg, Styria, hosted its very first aviation event, this show was later to become known as AIR POWER. Since then, its organizers, the Austrian Federal Army (Bundesheer), the Province of Styria and energy drink manufacturer RED BULL have conducted some of the best aviation events ever to have been held on European soil. This winning combination of organizers has managed to keep this popular event alive despite opposition efforts from green and leftist groups. Nevertheless, from 2-3 September 2022 the 10th AIR POWER show was held. Austrians have always been excellent at exploiting their central location in Europe, while Austria’s neutral status has also enhanced its relationship with their neighboring countries.
