The Gergeti Trinity Church (წმიჶდა სამება, Tsminda Sameba) on a hill (2170 m) above the town of Kazbegi (aka Stepantsminda) in north-eastern Georgia.

"The Gergeti Trinity Church was built in the 14th century, and is the only cross-cupola church in Khevi province. The separate belltower dates from the same period as the church itself. Its isolated location on top of a steep mountain surrounded by the vastness of nature has made it a symbol for Georgia. The 18th century Georgian author Vakhushti Batonishvili wrote that in times of danger, precious relics from Mtskheta, including Saint Nino's Cross were brought here for safekeeping. During the Soviet era, all religious services were prohibited, but the church remained a popular tourist destination. The church is now an active establishment of the Georgian Orthodox and Apostolic Church. The church is a popular waypoint for trekkers in the area, and can be reached by a steep 3 hour climb up the mountain, or around 30 minutes by jeep up a rough mountain trail." (Text from Wikipedia).

1st you have made so good and nice pictures of the airshow. 2nd I cant believe what you are holding there in front of a sign saying not to touch any remainings of ammo. How stupid (sorry) is this? Its dangerous, look at the one whos holding the yellow shell, this is most prob a HEI round; because of people like you, all the show get more and more restricted. Can you imagine what it means [...] (Andy)
