The largest Slovak air show for the past four years will take place at Očová airport (Banská Bystrica region) on August 30-31, its manager, Hubert Stoksa, told the TASR newswire on August 25.

The third Slovak Air Fest (SAF), which is expected to attract as many as 20,000 spectators, will feature displays by around 30 aircraft and helicopters.

The visitors will see a staged attack on the airport with MI-24 helicopters, Albatros fighter planes and pyrotechnic effects, and a show put on by Martin Kindernay's Flying Circus from the Czech Republic, said Stoksa.

Also, a copy of a Bleriot plane in which Slovak aviator M.R. Štefánik used to fly will have its international premiere. The air show will also include thrilling World War dog-fight simulations and the destruction of an airship.

"We've prepared acrobatic air displays by Zoltán Veres from Hungary and Peter Podlunsek from Slovenia, one of the world's top arial acrobats, and the legendary White Albatross team from the Slovak Air Force," Stoksa said. TASR
