Oldtimer Airplane Meeting "Hahnweide Airfield" (Kirchheim/Germany)
For more than 20 years a veteran airplane meeting takes place on the Hahnweide Airfield near Kirchheim unter Teck (southwest Germany). At the beginning of September in every odd year hundreds of veteran airplanes visit the small airfield.
What has started in 1979 as a quiet meeting of flight enthusiasts has developed into one of the greatest meetings of its manner in Germany.

The "Hahnweide" is a trans-Europeanly known gliding field and has two grass runways of different length and orientation.
The organizer of the meeting is the "Fliegergruppe Wolf Hirth", a Flight Club, which has its home on the "Hahnweide". For the event of the meeting there are hundreds of voluntary helpers needed. Only this way the three days of the meeting, with its 50 - 60,000 spectators, can be a sucess, for those who take part and for the spectators.

It is not the sense of the event to demonstrate risky aerial maneuvers.

The history of the beginning of aviation shall be represented lively to an interested audience, and of course the "old flying mashines" shall be shown in the air!!

According to these aims, there never happened bad accidents on the "Hahnweide" up to now.
