They came from all over the country, and many of the visitors were also from Poland. But spectators who drove by waited in long lines for up to two hours. Columns formed on Saturday from all directions throughout the morning, but also in the evening. After completing the program on the first day, people also spent dozens of minutes on it.

Military, security and rescue units from 19 countries are participating in this year’s event. For the first time, there is a representative from South America, namely Brazil, which offers the C-390 Millennium transport aircraft. For the first time, not only in Mošnov, but also in the whole of Central and Eastern Europe, the latest Swedish JAS-39 Gripen E was introduced into the air this year.

Dozens of aircraft and other equipment were on display in the area, as well as displays of soldiers, firefighters, customs and medical personnel there. On Sunday, people will again see dynamic demonstrations in the air and on the ground, and the program will be the same on Saturday. In addition to the main programme, presentations for the pathology departments will also be prepared in the side area.

Helicopters ordered by the Czech Republic from the American company Bell were also displayed in Mochnov. The Czech Republic will buy eight UH-1Y Venom multirole helicopters and four AH-1Z Viper combat helicopters. They will pay 14.6 billion CZK for 12 machines. The United States gave another eight helicopters to the Czech Republic.

The advantage of Venoms and Vipers is that they can be improved and expanded their capabilities.
