XX Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is behind us. This year (2012 ) was held on Sunday January 8 . Just like a year ago, the Foundation has worked with the Polish LOT Lotnicze ropes , and the result of this collaboration is a repaint of Embraer 170 SP- LDI in color Medic -LOT (commonly called “Orkiestrolot” ) . Also, like a year ago was organized plane flight with Jurek Owsiak on Final for the media , where we had the opportunity to participate. And now it’s time to tell (of course in a nutshell ) how it all looked .
Start this year’s event was held in Zakopane , which is why we went there already the day before. On Saturday , in the chair. 17.00 took off from Warsaw , together with representatives of the Office of the Press and other journalists flight to Krakow. The flight was nice and fast , and after 35 minutes we were already on the disc Krakow airport . Then we went with a special bus to the hotel in Zakopane , in the next day to be present at the start of WOŚPu .
On Sunday ( 8 January 2012 ) punctually at 9.00 was the ceremonial start of the twentieth Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity on stage for Equal Krupowa in Zakopane. Starting lasted about 50 minutes , there were present , among others, Jurek Owsiak and the entire staff WOŚPu , Border Guard brass band , singers , musicians , actors , etc. It is worth mentioning that in Zakopane was really a lot of snow and the whole time dosypywało , which meant that the shooting was not easy , but thanks to this climate came , winter scene. Then came the time to go back to Krakow because of the 13.45 we had to appear in Warsaw on TV input with Owsiak for TVP . Approx. 10.00 we left Zakopnego under police escort to quickly overcome the crowded ” Zakopianka ” and before 12.00 we were already on the disc Krakow airport . Time for a quick photo opp. before the start of the aircraft and the crew and staff WOŚPu , then flying to Warsaw. In this direction flight was much more interesting for a number of reasons. First of all – beautiful sun above the clouds and clear air favored shooting and meant that everyone was cheerful and smiling, and the clouds below form beautiful views . You should not forget the biggest attractions of this flight – escorted by two F-16 fighters Polish Air Force . Machines accompanied Orkiestrolotowi on both sides for about 6 minutes, then flew on patrol . There were airplanes ni. 4086 and 4064 . Impressions simply sensational. Flying in escort make you feel really safe , and besides , you can experience truly amazing adventure and photograph the Polish F -16 with an interesting and unusual perspective ( however, because few people have the possibility to make air2air fighters F -16) . In any case, this event certainly will long remain in our memory. Another surprise was the low-pass (low passage ) above the runway the airport in Warsaw. A very nice touch at the end of the journey, and then only to land and water salute welcome on board Okecie . And so ended the flight of “CharityLOT” .
Take a look at shots from this entire event ( flight on Saturday , the start of the finals in Zakopane and the flight on Sunday).
