After around four years of a "corona break", an open day will take place on June 18, 2023 at Mönchengladbach Airport, which is mainly used by business jets and general aviation.
It starts at 11 a.m., admission is free. Then it's time to collect information and impressions, marvel at exciting aircraft and celebrate with the partners on site. Guests can explore the airport in a variety of ways, from a bus tour of the grounds to a bird's-eye view of a helicopter flight.
This year, the MGL can also welcome a true legend of aviation as a guest at the open day in Mönchengladbach: the Mustang P-51D "Frances Dell" of the Flying Legends from Siegerland. A highlight for all aviation enthusiasts - and not the only one. The seat of the co-pilot and the associated flight from Siegerland Airport to Mönchengladbach with the Frances Dell will be auctioned. The winner has the unique opportunity to experience the myth of the P-51 for themselves and also to do something good. The proceeds of the auction will be donated in full to the children's hospice Insel Tobi e. V. in Mönchengladbach. Aviation fans can also look forward to other exciting aircraft and of course our permanent guest "Tante Ju52". Interested parties can learn more about the legendary aircraft of Mönchengladbach aviation pioneer Hugo Junkers in guided tours. The Association of Friends of Historic Aircraft e. V. grants insights into the interior of the flying cultural asset.
