JAS-39 Gripen of the Hungarian Airforce performs during the International Air Show at the Hungarian Air Force base in Kecskemet (about 87 km South-East of the capital city Budapest), Hungary on August 03, 2013.

This year there was terrible heat on the weekend of the Kecskemet Air Show, that meant a special challenge for both viewers and photographers. It wasn’t an easy task to wander around with the heavy photo equipment in the 37 degree Celsius. I guess it wasn’t easy for the pilots either however in the air they probably felt much better than people on the ground.

It is hard to imagine how strong structures can be made from the everyday strings of pasta we eat for dinner. Yet Hungarian students every year spend long hours but rather days building spaghetti bridges only to have them broken (or blown) into pieces for the sake of the Reccs (meaning ‘crack’ in Hungarian) competition – no wonder some of them can’t bear to watch it.
