On September 1-3, the ‘first of its kind’ International Army Show will take place at Twenthe Airport, a former military airbase in the Netherlands. This event is for anyone who owns a military vehicle or has a passion for military vehicles, whether it’s Jeeps, tanks or anything in between. Owners of army vehicles can participate in the Concours d’Elegance, and visitors get the opportunity to ride in tanks and other army vehicles and participate in virtual reality shooting. Various re-enactment shows are planned as well as a military exposition. In Hangar 11, there will be more than 8,000 square metres of stalls full of militaria and vintage items. Children can play and be part of various activities like camouflage painting, rock-wall climbing and driving around on a quad bike at the military playground.
This event, adopting the idea from the War And Peace Revival Show, provides the opportunity to camp in an army campsite. This will enable those staying for all three days of the event to experience how it used to be in the camps. The hangars and barracks at Twenthe create the perfect backdrop; it has the atmosphere of the past but with the modern facilities of toilets, showers and electricity.
