    I am very much looking forward to see opening ceremony. With very high respect to all of those heroes, best in our history.

  2. Vera (Vee) Darlington says:

    A fitting tribute to all those Czech airmen who fought for the freedom of their homeland. These included my father, Karel Kuttelwascher DFC and Bar.

  3. Sue Wells says:

    Very appropriate memorial for these brave airmen.

    I notice in the first of the photos showing the completed project there is a structure on the right with posters on it. One of the posters has the ‘hammer and sickle’ and the words ‘KGB’ Maybe the reason why this has been such a uphill battle.

  4. Chris Lock says:

    Politics aside, both Milena and myself look forward to paying our respects to this fine memorial and to the men the memorial represents. Lest We Forget.

  5. Mike says:

    Wow! Well done! – this memorial looks really nice and well fitting for the remembrance of these Czechoslovak RAF airmen.
