Walkaround #1033

L-29 Dolphin

These photos were taken by Tony Meso of a Slovak camouflaged L-29 Dolphin. After 3rd overhaul in maintenance company Trencin all Slovak Dolphin got camouflaged coat (I know only unofficial version). These pictures were taken between 1998 - 2002 during my service as senior crew chief for maintenance and repairs  on the L-29 and Su-25 K.  I'm supposed these pictures don't need any description. In 2002 all L-29 were deactivated and transported to Slovak aircraft museums. I hope everyone enjoys the photos.   Tony
