Slovenian Air Force L-410 Turbolet

The L-410 Turbolet, built by Czechoslovak manufacturer Let, first flew in 1969. It is a twin-turboprop light transport, and over 1,100 examples have been produced, the majority of sales having been to Eastern Bloc and other communist countries during the Soviet era. Still a rugged and popular machine, the Aircraft Industries firm, successor to Let, continues to build new L-410s in its factory in Kunovice, Czech Republic, and upgrades are offered too. The Slovenian Air Force flies a single L-410UVP-E version, which has been used to support various international missions in the Balkans. It was recently re-painted in an all-over grey scheme.

“It was an epic spectacle, as magical as anything you've ever seen in the West End, and as loud as anything you've ever heard at Knebworth.”

Jeremy Clarkson, Television Presenter
