WONSAN, September 25. /TASS/. The second day of the first ever air show in North Korean history has started in the city of Wonsan in the eastern part of the country. The day started with demonstration performances of parachutists.
Parachutists from North Korea, United States, Germany, Czech Republic, New Zealand and several other countries took part in the demonstration, for which the Mi-8 helicopter was used. Demonstrations of radio-controlled aircraft, including Russian Yak-24 and US F-16, also took place at the airshow.
During the two-day airshow, the audience will see an interesting program that includes demonstration flights of North Korea’s civil and military aircraft. Today the visitors received an opportunity to take pictures near MiG-29 fighter jets and Su-25 jets.
The main events unfold on the territory of the Kalma airport, second-largest airport in North Korea. The construction of the new airport on the place of a former military base started in June 2014 and cost around $130 million. The modern airport has become the hallmark of Wonsan.
