Hello again!

 

My plans to publish an update per month vanished very soon…There are lots of reasons, but I don’t want to bother you with excuses. At least there is an update now online and it is about „Rädern und Ketten“ which took place between 2. - 3. June 2018 in the Museum of Military History in Vienna.

I could only attend on Sunday, missing the first tank show. In my opinion there were less people as usually. A (personal) indication was the fact that they still had “Panzerbier” in the afternoon. Normally it’s sold out already at noon. Again, there was some rare stuff to see.

Unfortunately my camera jammed before the afternoon tank show and I had to continue with my mobile phone. GNA GNA GNA!!!

It was convenient to visit a temporary exhibition about selected missions from the Austrian Armed Forces between 1955 – 1991. The illumination is surprisingly good, so acceptable pictures are possible, even without a flash.

As there are still some uncertainties in conjunction with the new European data protection law in regard to publication of pictures with persons I want to ask you to contact me if you want to have a picture deleted.

 

All the best from Vienna, Werner
