Earlier this month the Bulgarian Air Force celebrated its 102nd anniversary with an air show at Sofia, which included several interesting war planes.

The Air Show held at Sofia, Bulgaria, on Oct. 11, gave many visitors the opportunity to see many interesting, venerable Bulgarian Air Force planes at work.








Among the types that took part in the flying display, there was a Mig-29 Fulcrum jet that first performed a “Cobra maneuver” and then engaged another aircraft of the same type in a mock aerial dogfight (here’s the footage filmed from aboard the plane); Su-25 Frogfoot attack aircraft, Mig-21 Fishbed, L-39 Albatros and C-27J Spartan.

Photographer Alberto Celsan attended the air show and took the interesting photographs you can see in this post.
