Zlin Z-50LA

@ Prague, Czech Republic

April 2019

During a 2019 river cruise, I was fortunate to visit the excellent National Technical Museum in Prague. First flown in 1975, the Zlin Z-50 is an aerobatic sports airplane built by the Czech company Zlin Aircraft. Czech pilots won the World Aerobatic Championships three times flying the Z-50. This example was flown by Ivan Tuček during his WAC win in 1978. American airshow pilot Rob Harrison “The Tumbling Bear” performed with Z-50 aircraft for close to 25 years. Fuji X-E2s w/18-135mm.
