The annual open day and model aircraft competition took place at Lesce Sports Airfield on Monday this week – Assumption Day.
We went along to watch some of the amazing model aircraft, which, apart from the size, could easily be mistaken for the real thing!
One can only imagine the hours upon hours of painstaking labour, not to mention patience and precision, that go into making such models.
In addition to the model aircraft show and competition, visitors also had the chance to see aircraft up close…
…and even a chance to sit inside!
I managed to get a shot of a model aeroplane and real aeroplane almost in unison, which perfectly illustrates the likeness of the former to the latter. Can you work out which one is which?!?!
Although the event has now been and gone for this year, you can still visit the airport at anytime to just observe the comings and goings while enjoying a drink and/or meal at the excellent on-site Na Klezn’k restaurant. A great meal with a great view!
You can also treat yourself to a panoramic plane or helicopter flight above Lake Bled, the Karavanke mountains, the Julian Alps and the wider Gorenjska area. For more information send an email to: email@example.com
Various other events and competitions are held at the airfield throughout the year, including an annual paragliding competition.

In addition, the airport’s location on the Radovljica Plains provides excellent conditions for gliding.
So, another place to add to your ‘must visit’ list whilst in the Radol’ca area!

I’ve walked past the airfield a few times and peeped over, so thank you for this great insight. And how lovely does that restaurant look?!
Hi Sue, yes, do visit. On a fine day it’s lovely sitting on the terrace and watching the comings and goings. Of course, it’s not exactly busy with aircraft, as it’s only small, but nonetheless it’s a lovely location and worth a visit. And great cakes too (though sadly I can’t eat any of them).
