Chapter Nineteen : Ilona Duczynska: Sovereign Revoltionary
/ Kenneth McRobbie
... A self-educated minor railway functionary 5--he was at
heart an inventor. Design drawings
for a powered navigable airship, on which he had collaborated
with father, were viewed
by the very young Duczynska when on display in the Vienna
Museum of Technology, and may have inspired her later study
of aeronautics and determination to get a pilot's licence.
The museum took over a few buildings and part of the grounds
of the Rakowice-Czyzny airfield, one of the oldest military
airfields in Europe. The museum airfield was, at the end of
the 1800s, home to a balloon detachment of Garrison Artillery
2nd Regiment of Krakow Fortress.
