Oldtimer Weekend 2018 - Brno, Czech Republic

Post by upnorth » Sun Sep 09, 2018 2:18 pm

Hello all,

This weekend was the annual Oldtimer Weekend at the Medlánky glider airport in Brno, Czech Republic.

The weather was lovely with Autumn backdrops to shoot some of the action against.

What looked like a freshly built Grunau Baby II was the first thing to get my attention upon arrival:

The M-28 is a Czech recreational glider design

Flying action started with the local aeroklub's Piper Pawnee taking the L-23 skyward

The Letov LF-107 Luňák, a rare Czech aerobatics type from the late 1940s, putting on a display

Another Czech rarity was this VSB-62 Vega from 1962. The only one of its kind ever made

Not vintage, but quite welcome all the same was this Duo Discus

We also had some vintage GA aircraft on hand:

These two Zlín Tréners, a Z-226 and Z-126 respectively, dropped in to join the event

This Orličan L-60 Brigadýr took skydivers up several times

All right... all right... but apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the Romans done for us?
