Long Description:
Kunovice Aviation Museum was founded in 1970 by members of the Moravian Aeroclub, Alois Hrácek and Jirí Marek. Initially it was built as a museum or cooperative aircraft produced in a factory in Kunovice (visit link) .

The air museum at Kunovice focuses its exhibition primarily on aircraft built by the Let company (visit link) , which has its headquarters at the Kunovice airport (visit link) . Let was originally established as a branch of the Prague based Avia company in 1936 assigned to do maintenance on Avia built aircraft. Let came into its own as a manufacturer in the 1950s initially by producing designs of other companies.

The museum’s collection also includes a selection of former Czechoslovak air force aircraft including MiG-15, MiG-19 and MiG-21 fighter jets as well as Sukhoi Su-7 attack aircraft, a Mil Mi-4 helicopter and two variants of the Avia Av-14 transport, the Av-14 being the Czech license built version of the Illyushin Il-14.


Su-7
The Sukhoi Su-7 (NATO designation name: Fitter-A) was a swept wing, supersonic fighter aircraft developed by the Soviet Union in 1955. Originally, it was designed as tactical, low-level dogfighter, but was not successful in this role. On the other hand, the soon-introduced Su-7B series became the main Soviet fighter-bomber and ground-attack aircraft of the 1960s. The Su-7 was rugged in its simplicity but its shortcomings included short range and low weapon load.
