Czech Republic & Austria Tour – Saturday 31st August through to Saturday 7th September 2019
Join us for 6 days spotting in Czech Republic where the Czech Air Force will be attending the annual Czech International Air Fest held at Hradec Králové.
We will also have a look at the following military bases. Being there on weekdays, we are hoping to see some military movements and all these bases can be viewed from outside;
Cáslav (JAS-39/L-39 & L-159), Námest (Mi-24/Mi-35 & Mi-171)
Námest (Mi-24/Mi-35 & Mi-171)
Pardubice (EV-97/E480/L-39/L-410/Mi-17 & Z142)
Prague-Kbely (A319, CL601, C295M, L-410, Mi-8, Mi-17 & W-3A).
10 museums will be visited and as many of the various wrecks & relics located on our route around the Czech Republic for those of us who like military heritage.
This will be a unique chance to see as many past (Czechoslovak) and present aircraft operated by the Czech Republic Air Force as possible.
To finish off the extensive tour around the Czech Republic, we head South into Austria for 2 days to take in the bi-annual Airpower19 show at Zeltweg. As with the Czech International Air Fest show, this will be a great chance to see many past and present aircraft operated by the Austrian Air Force. It has been confirmed that the museum on the base is also open during the Airpower19 show.
Some time will also be spent at Prague’s main airport with 2 nights hotel being close to Prague/Václav Havel airport (PRG) which is the main base for CSA Czech Airlines and SmartWings. Also Brno–Tuřany airport & Vienna/Schwechat airport (VIE) which is the main base for Austrian Airlines, Eurowings Europe, LEVEL and Laudamotion.
