General Miroslav Štandera is one of the few remaining living heroes of the foreign resistance from the years 1939-1945. Therefore it is a great honour for us to welcome him, between the special guests, at the Pardubice Air Show 2013. Together with him, we will pay tribute to General Vladimír Nedvěd as an honour of his fight for freedom, during the Air Show opening ceremony on Sunday the 2nd of June.
The Aviation Fair is not just about the meeting of people among themselves, but also between man and machine, in our case between the pilot and the aircraft, which is happening here many times after the years or even decades. A real example is this case is general Štandera, who will have a chance to touch again after many years an Avia B-534 fighter biplane, in which he served in Pardubice before the war, or a Gloster Meteor jet he flew in the fifties in the Royal Air Force.
