Hello all,

Yesterday, a small display of Czech made planes was set up on Svobody square in Brno, Czech Republic. Along with the planes were some other displays showing Czech accomplishments in aerospace fields. The display goes until this Sunday (17.6.2018)

The display is part of larger celebrations across the country marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the old Czechoslovakia. Specifically, this display marks 100 years of Czech aviation.

Here's a few views of the planes:

The Phoenix Air U-15E Phoenix electric powered glider is a contemporary Czech ultralight design currently in production.



The Let L-200 Morava was first flown in 1957 and a total of around 370 were made between 1957 and 1964.



This is a rare example of the L-13TJ version of the legendary Let L-13 Blaník glider, one of two Blaníks fitted with a jet engine on the back for some record setting flights.



The Zlín Z42 first flew in 1967 and was the first version of a large family of training aircraft used in several countries.


A true legend among Czech made aircraft, the Aero L-29 Delfín jet trainer first flew in 1959.

Fantastic.  How did they land them in such a tight space?   ;D

Love the look of the Morava.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Some interesting shots there, thanks  :thumbsup:

2018 is an interesting year. The "death" of the old order in Europe and the birth of so much "new". Although if you go back a few hundred years or so farther a lot of what was then deemed new was in fact quite well established  ;D
Decals my @r$e!

Awesome!  Great to see them displayed for the public.
