This Tuesday, the first 2 Pilatus PC-21 TCB arrived for the Spanish Air Force (in Spain they will receive the designation E. 27) produced by the Swiss company Pilatus Aircraft.

The contract for the purchase of 24 new RS-21 turboprop training aircraft was signed in November 2019.

The contract value was 204.75 million euros. The RS-21 aircraft should replace the CASA C-101EV Aviojet jet combat training aircraft of the Spanish production of the 1980s at the Spanish Air Force Academy as the main stage of training. The Swiss PC-21 became the winner following the results of the tender, which also involved Beechcraft T-6C Texan II turboprop aircraft(USA), Embraer EMB-314 Super Tucano(Brazil) and KAI KT - (South Korea).

"River airfield"

In 1923, a new airline, Aeroexpress Rt, started operating in Hungary. It was founded by Count Andre Jankovich-Busan and the German aircraft manufacturer Junkers Flugzeug-und Motorenwerke AG. Permits were obtained for flights on the routes Budapest-Szekesfehervar-Nagykanizza-Zagreb, Budapest-Prague and Budapest — Bucharest.

It is expected that the airline's fleet consisted of Junkers F 13 aircraft. In the photo, three of the six seaplanes that Aeroexpress Rt had are bobbing on the waves of the Danube. A river airfield was set up next to the Gellért Hotel on St. Gellert Square. The bridge in the background was named Franz Josef (today the Freedom Bridge). This airfield was operated for a short time — by 1930, the Aeroexpress Rt airline was recognized as unprofitable and stopped its work.

Exactly 20 years ago, the US Air Force conducted the first UAV airstrike in history. It happened in Afghanistan
