C-GGRY / ''GreyBird'' / L-29
"Grey" as we fondly call her is a 1972 L29 originally used as number #100 by the Bulgarian Airforce.  She's equipped with daytime VFR equipment, external fuel tanks.
C-GGRI / ''Virginia" / L-29
"Virginia" comes to us via the Czech airforce as 1927.  She was re-built in 1994, crated and shipped to the US.   She is 100% original Czech, direct from Prague.  She is daytime VFR equipped, and has external fuel tanks.
C-GDLG / ''RedBird" / L-29 (no longer available for shows)
Our beautiful "Red" was our first acquisition, she flew well for us and showed a lot of people just how great these ships can be. She was originally #77 in the Bulgarian Airforce.  She has since moved on, and is no longer part of our collection.  You can read and see what she's up to here:  Project Oscar. We're very happy she's doing this for our environment.
