Oldtimers Weekend - 2020 (Part 1)
« on: September 05, 2020, 11:24:27 pm »
Hello all,

This weekend marks the annual Oldtimers Weekend event hosted by the Medlánky Aeroclub in Brno, Czech Republic.

The two major airshow events in the Czech Republic have either been cancelled or reduced to some televised variation, so this is the closest thing I'll get to an airshow this year I'm quite sure. Big thanks to the Aeroklub for staying the course and making the event happen this year.

These are pictures I took on Saturday. Out of respect for Medlánky airport's primary role as a glider base, part one of my post on the event will be the gliders. I'll make a separate part 2 for the powered aircraft:

Good pics.
Thanks for sharing.

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

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Gliders have their own form of elegance!

That's because they have long wings.  ;D
