Sweeping Up in September

A Bit of Houskeeping and Rebalancing the Load

September of 2022 is coming to a close and it’s been a busy month at Pickled Wings. Three airshows across three weekends gave me lots of great new images to show you.

Those same shows gave me lots of new images to accompany upcoming articles and to update existing ones. Here’s a list of existing articles that I’ve been able to update:

My article on the Zeltweg Air Museum got the biggest facelift. At almost ten years old, it is one of the oldest articles on the site. Happily, the AirPower 2022 show in Zeltweg gave me the opportunity to visit the museum and take fresh pictures. As a result, the article received fully fresh photos, and extensive update and expansion to the text, and a full review of the links.

The new photos I took at the Zeltweg museum, and the AirPower 2022 show, also allowed me to do partial refreshment of photos on my Saab J-29 Tunnan and Saab J-35 Draken articles. I also took the opportunity to review and refresh the links in both articles.

The AirPower 2022 show itself, gave me opportunities to partially refresh the photographic content of the Pilatus PC-6 Porter and Panavia Tornado IDS articles. I also made some adjustments to the links in the Tornado article.

Between the AirPower 2022 show and the NATO Days show later in the month, I was able to partially refresh the photographs in the Antonov An-2 “Colt” article. I also reviewed and updated the links in that article.

AirPower 2022 and the Medlánky Oldtimers Weekend event gave me some fresh photos for the Let L-13 Blaník article.

the Medlánky Oldtimers Weekend also gave me fresh photos for the Orličan L-40 Meta Sokol and Zlín/Let Z-37 Čmelák articles. Additionally, I made some updates to the links section of the Z-37 article.

Aside of the above article updates, I have also taken some time to clean up the Pickled Wings homepage before adding more to it. I moved some articles to permanent spots in the menus and completely deleted some others.

With the load lightened and adjusted, Pickled Wings is ready to fly into October and the rest of 2022.
