Joint Sky 2020

September 18. 2020 | Ostrava

As a part of the accompanying programme of the NATO Days in Ostrava we have prepared traditional debates of foreign participants with students from the Moravian-Silesian Region. Our invitation was accepted by pilots from 155th Air Refueling Wing of Nebraska Air National Guard unit (for more information, see the post on their official Facebook page), who then flew over Ostrava, Prague and Pilsen on Saturday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II with their KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft. The pilots visited a total of ten schools over three days to the great response of students and teachers.
