Its easy to do this with a drone if your part of the airshow team. Proper insurance / flight plans / everyone knowing what’s happening, so radios between drone pilot / tower / planes etc. If you coordinate it all then this is simple to achieve.

Just because there is a big red dot round an airport does not mean that drone flights will never be able to be flown there. Drones are often used at airports for very valid reasons. It’s all about having the right infrastructure and agreements in place.

Seems to be a fairly new show. So many shows are being cancelled in the UK.

In the YouTube description it has this – - its in June so you will be able to watch it on YouTube 20th - 21st June

Join us live from one of Europe’s most exciting airshows, Antidotum Airshow Leszno in Poland.
