A total of 130,000 people visited the two-day NATO Days and Czech Airforce Days military show at the Mošnov airfield near Ostrava, organisers said. In view of bad weather on Saturday attendance was higher on the second day, with 85,000 visitors registered on Sunday. Last year 220,000 people attended the event, which is one of the largest military shows in Europe. Organisers said this year’s programme was the richest in the 16-year history of the show. Over 250 pieces of military hardware, including various fighter planes, were on display at the free event.
