International Aerospace Exhibition Berlin-Schönefeld 1998

One of the highlights of the ILA 1998 in Berlin-Schönefeld was certainly the Antonov AN-70. At the time, the German Air Force was interested in the aircraft in order to expand its long-haul transport capacities. Unfortunately, the aircraft with the four conspicuous turboprop engines, each with two counter-rotating propellers, was not procured after all. The ILA 1998 was also marked by the 50th anniversary of the Berlin Airlift. For this reason, historic aircraft such as the Boeing B-17 "Flying Fortress" bomber and the Douglas C-54 "Skymaster" transport aircraft were also on display. At that time, it was also a matter of course that aircraft of the German Armed Forces from all branches (Air Force, Army and Navy) were presented flying in large numbers. Here are some pictures from 18 May 1998:
