In May 2008 I flew with Ryanair from Frankfurt-Hahn to Berlin-Schönefeld (SFX). Reason was the ILA - Berlin Airshow at Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BBI). Flighttickets were rather cheap these days, so we gave a try. Now, in 2014, seeing those photos still brings back a lot of good memories. The ILA 2008 Airshow was held from May 27th, 2008 to June 1st, 2008 on the southern (former) part of Berlin-Schönefeld (SFX) Airport, which will be Berlin Brandenburg International Airport (BBI) one day. German Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed the special guests from India, as India was  the partner country in 2008.
