This unidentified Antonov An-2 sits on the roof of a multi storey car park in the Northern part of the city.
Presumably a local design, this Aviatechnica SL-90 sits on the roof of a general store in Brestnik on the outskirts, it was just up the road from my hotel.
Plovdiv Krumovo Airport is now dual role civil / military with a new terminal building similar to LJLA. Ryanair and Wizz are the main /only operators.
Ryanair fr/to Dublin and London-Stansted. Wizz fr/to Dortmund, Memmingham and London-Luton. The military side houses Mil-8s, Mil-24s and the Museum.
The dump has four Lithuanian Let 410s slowly rotting away LY-MAA, LY-MJR, LY-MMR, LY-MRA plus a Cessna 177 LZ-KTC.
Due to the nearby fighter base at Graf Ignatievo being closed for runway repairs 6 Mig-29s and 2 L-39s were temporarily based here
12, 14 (white) Mig-29UBs 15, 31, 37, 38 (white) Mig-29As 147, 203 (white) Aero Vodochody L-39ZA Bulgarian Air Force.
I managed to grab a sneaky shot of a Mig-29 on Sunday afternoon when the place was absolutely deserted, a pity about that tarpaulin.
