Exhibition „S. Darius and S. Girėnas airfield“


Lithuanian aviation was born in Kaunas, at Aleksotas airfield. The airfield, which was built in 1915 by the German army, is still on operation. In the south-eastern part of the airfield the Lithuanian aviation museum is located. Celebrating the anniversary of the first hundred years of Republic of Lithuania, portable exhibition „S. Darius and S. Girėnas airfield“ (this name was given to the Aleksotas airfield in 1993) was opened at the Lithuanian Aviation Museum on February 9th. Authors have devoted most of their attention to the history of the airfield in 1919-1940, when Lithuania rapidly raised it's „wings of steel“ and Lithuanian aviators soon became known and gained recognition in the world.

In a later time, the exhibition is planned to be shown at our other partner spaces, including Germany and Czech Republic.  More relevant information about the exhibition will be available in the "Aviacijos pasaulis" (Aviation World) and the Lithuanian Aviation Museum websites: www.aviacijospasaulis.lt and www.lam.lt.

Exhibition „S. Darius and S. Girėnas airfield“ will be exhibited at the Lithuanian Aviation Museum until March 9th, until it will be replaced by exhibition „Lithuanian Military Aviation in the Independence Battle of 1919-1920“. If you have a chance - be sure to visit!
