The sold out arena also saw very special appearance of the President of Slovakia Andrej Kiska.
Slovak International Air Fest takes place on the last weekend of August and it is the largest airshow in Slovakia. This year’s highlights included Pterodactyl Flight (World War 1 Planes Sopwith Strutter, Fokker D.VII, Piper L-4H among others), aerobatic groups Al Fursan (United Arab Emirates) and Krila Oluje (Croatia) and Solo Turk flying F-16 Fighting Falcon. The biggest let-down was the very first appearance of Rockwell B-1B Lancer. It’s two very fast fly-by’s weren’t nearly enough to get a good look on this flying beast.

Belinda is working hard on the return to professional tennis after the left wrist surgery in May 2017. After the short meeting with the press, she shared a few laughs on court with her friend Tereza Mihalikova. Afterwards we strolled around Trnava’s historic center to make some off court, leisure time photos.
