From the Museum of Transport into the skies: A-97 flies again!
A-97 showed up briefly over the town of Krosno during most beautiful autumnal flight weather, afterwards flying towards the first foothills of the scenic lower Carpathian mountains. After one hour the aircraft landed safely in Krosno again.
The President of our society, Reiner Vondruska was following the flight from Switzerland and sent his congratulations afterwards:
„I thank you all – also on behalf of the plane – very cordially for your contribution and support and wish to the pilots already now much joy flying this unique aircraft: long live A-97!“, he wrote in his email.
The registration SP-YRX is provisionally only and has been assigned by the Polish Civil Aviation Authourity ULC fort he period of test flights. The historic aircraft will fly in Switzerland later on with the new registration HB-EHJ as our Number 4 within the society. After certification by the Swiss Civil Aviation Office FOCA it will be transferred to Switzerland.
