Letňany Open Day 2014

September 6, 2014 was the annual open day of Prague’s historic Letňany airport. In its 90 year history, this airport has been the site of many historic events in Czech aviation and served as an early home for legendary Czech aviation firms Avia and Letov.

The event was a small, laid back and primarily civilian affair with a strong focus on vintage and replica aircraft. Here’s just a sampling of what was there:
