For them the most beautiful view of the world is the one from dizzying height. They also know the story about this in Deštná in Jindřichohradecko, where you can find a museum with expositions focused on our aviators fighting in battlefronts of the 2nd World War and the history of aviation in the South of Bohemia. You will see historical aviation equipment and uniforms, fragments of combat aircrafts, documentation and inheritance of our RAF aviators. In the pious room there is a mold from graves of our fallen aviators.
