One thought on “Me

  1. Hello Chavdar,

    My name is Rene Sleegers and I’m an editor for Dutch Aviation Society / Scramble.
    Monday 6th of may is the Bulgarian Army day parade and I want to write a small article for our social media. To make the article look better I want to use a few photo’s and I found a photo from you via Google, it’s a shot of 3 Mig-29’s. Is it ok to use your photo and do you have more photos?

    I found when the rehearsels and real parade are gonna take place but do you have more information about the flypast itself? What kind of aircraft and how many of each?
    Hope to hear from you soon and thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,
    Rene Sleegers
