Letňany Open Day 2016

The tenth of September saw me on a day trip to Prague for the open day of the historic Letňany airport located there.

It was a small event, but with an interesting array of civilian flying. Lots of props and pistons to be heard, with a bit of turboprop and rotor noise on the side for some variety.
