Bulgaria Trip 22-6-1992 – 5-7-1992

This was supposed to be a beach holiday with my girlfriend at the time. The approach to Bourgas was visible from the beach, and there were many interesting aircraft seen on approach (and not always identified), including Aeroflot An26’s. A crop spraying Kamov KA26 also evaded identification. Beer was 8p a pint, the climate was warm, and the people friendly. The flight to Sofia was interesting, as the AN24 was full, and there were many passengers without a seat who stood for the entire journey. Flights were to and from London Stansted on a Balkan TU154.
