    Commemorative ceremonies of winning Poznan-Ławica airport by Wielkopolska uprisers were being held on 6th January.


    Army representatives and local authorities laid flowers and wreath at the Tomb to the Ławica airport seizers. During the ceremony, an exhibition “90 years over Poznan skies” displaying military aircraft in Wielkopolska region from the period of regaining independence until today was opened for public (..).
