SLOVAK AF 2003 Malacky- Kuchina- Sliac- Trencin

Dutch Aviation Support visited to make a reportage for the magazine 'Piloot en Vliegtuig'  
( 'Pilot and Airplane' )  the largest independent Dutch Aviation Magazine
You'll meet old articles like these, we retain them for nostalgic reasons
Here the publication we had in 2003, even in the old lay-out of the magazine
Here we present you the photographic impressions next to the article:
Unfortunately Dutch Aviation Support were the last to make pictures of Fulcrums 6930 and 6829 which crashed a few days later after a mid-air collision. We'd like to dedicate the article and this page to both pilots and planes that flew for the freedom of us all. Never forget these men !

Often we have been asked: ' Why is it you want to picture the old and lame ' ducks' , the wrecks and relics, the stored and the written off planes and frames ?' The answer is quite simple. Click at the 'your history' page on the main-page. Many aviation enthousiast like to see and read about the history. And let's be frank, any airforce that denies it's history is no airforce. It just would'nt be fair to the men and women who worked with these historic machines.   That's why.  So we always hope to be permitted to picture this history next to all advanced, digital, up-dated and modern high tech machines. Look at some history of the Slovak Airforce down here.
