Aero Vodochody took the wraps off its L-159 Advanced Light Combat Aircraft, with the roll-out of the first prototype, a two-seat version of the new aircraft, but without the full avionics and radar package. Defence minister Miloslav Vyborny used the event, held at Aero's plant near Prague on 12 June, to commit Government funding for production of 72 L-159s for the Czech air force (Flight International, 18-24 June).
