CZECHOSLOVAK AVIATION - Collection by Jiri Fiala

1/72 Let C-11 and Orlican L-40 Meta Sokol

A model collection themed on Czechoslovak aviation by Jiri Fiala. The first 3 images are highlighting the first succesful flight of a Czech aviator (Jan Kaspar) on 16 April 1910. He actually didn┤t know  how to fly turns, but when airborne appeared a cow across his flying path, so he was forced to do something, and moved the steerwheel, making him able to fly turns then... Since then, there is even a proverb in the Czech language: "mÝt oci z Kasparovy kravy" (to have the Kaspar┤s cow┤s eyes = to be crosseyed).
