Airport Open Day
The air show at Letnany Airport will take place on Saturday, September 9th. The gate of one of the oldest Czech airports will open for visitors at 9:30 am and at 10 am a program will start. The show will start with a flying of large RC models and then a major aviation program will start.
The greatest attraction for aviation fans will be the performance of original historical aircraft or their loyal replicas. Starting with the first Czechoslovak plane Avia BH 1 from 1923, over the German airplane Arado 96BN or American military airplane Beechcraft 18. Next star is for example the Soviet fighter plane JAK 3 from the Second World War. Next airplanes are Airplanes and even aerobatic ones such as Zlín 50 or swift glider and many others.
Airport will be in full operation all day, so visitors in the air will see every day traffic at the airport next to the special program. There will also be ground program, show of the Police of the Czech Republic with examples, Active Backup of the Czech army of the Central Bohemian Region with a combat show and, of course, the Rota Nazdar – Military History Club, with examples of artillery, the army equipment from the Second World War and the operational materials.
