Open Day of Čáslav

The day of the open door in Čáslav this year resembled the 1960s since the foundation of the 21st Air Force base. You can see examples of infantry and cynology, the airport’s biological protection station, or the protection against weapons of mass destruction. As in the last day of the open door of the airport in Náměšť nad Oslavou, Čáslav also presented the Union of Czech Commercial and Military Clubs, including the Czech Spitfire Club. In addition to military equipment, there were also unannounced airplanes from the Prague VTU, local firefighting equipment or various historical vehicles.

During the whole day, there were aerial demonstrations of various machines dominated by the unique acrobatics of the Czech group The Flying Bulls Aerobatics Team and the solo acrobatic flight by Martin Šonka. For the first time in the Czech Republic, the Swiss Army Aerobatic Group Patrouille Suisse was introduced with its four F5E Tiger II machines. In addition, in the last hangar, the public could see the Aero L-159 Alca, the engine and equipment of the aircraft. Furthermore, the pilot’s equipment, weather forecast software, or full-featured simulator of the aforementioned machine.
