Pictorial history of the two “Victory Air Displays” in Prague, Czechoslovakia after WW2. They included aircraft from Allied counties such as the USA, UK and France, with many WW2 aircraft. The range of aircraft on display included the P-51D Mustang, P-47 Thunderbolt, B-17, B-29, A-26B Invader, F-80A Shooting Star, Spitfire, Meteor Mk. IV, Vampire, Lincoln, Anson and Avro York.

A fascinating and unusual glimpse of the aviation scene in Eastern Europe before the Iron Curtain came down, and some rare photos of major aircraft of the period.
