Visiting Poland in March or April
« dnia: Styczeń 13, 2015, 01:58:22 pm »
Hi guys and thanks for the addition to the forum.
Just what I'm looking for.
I'm in need of help.
 I'm planning a trip to Poland in the next few months and want to know what sort of reaction we might get taking photos and video at the front line jet basses.

We are planning to visit Poznan and swidwin, trying to get MiGs and SUs, in the UK we have viewing areas for the public and the local police are great with photographers, never had any problems here.

So are any of you guys local to the two front line bases, could do with some pointers.

Many thanks Mike and Josh

Hi and welcome to our forum :)
No official viewing areas for public in Poland, however "unofficial" can be found near air bases.
Unfortuantely I'm no local to Poznan (Krzesiny) and Swidwin and can't give you detailed pointers.

There will be no problems with the police (if you're going to take photos only) ;)

Hi there :)

Poznań Krzesiny - airbase of F-16 (no MiGs or Su-22 ;)
http://www.scramble.nl/airfield-guide/poznan-krzesiny - number 3 seems to be the most popular spot :)

If you log in to that website, you should also find info about Swidwin (with Su-22). One of local access roads to the fence of airbase -
https://www.google.pl/maps/dir/%C5%9Awidwin/53.794428,15.801644/@53.7960626,15.8059568,1779m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m9!4m8!1m5!1m1!1s0x470055b712ef6a2d:0xe87b832f634b3499!2m2!1d15.7742!2d53.77564!1m1!4e1?hl=pl
 If you want to get to the eastern side, you would need to park in Smardzko and walk north to the fence :)

If I find anything on Malbork, I will let you know :)

You may also try Powidz, near Poznan [ca. 50 km away].

Currently the MiG-29 Fulcrums from the Minsk Mazowiecki AB are stationed there, so you may try and push yyour luck.

The best spotting points are located at the opposite sides of the runway.

I think that the eastern end is better.

If you are looking for some place near Malbork air base I suggest go there:

I leave not too far from this place (circa 35km). If you have some problems or if you are looking for place to stay for a night near Malbork contact me please: bogucki.marcin@gmail.com or via phone 505624514.
