The monument in memory of Czechoslovak WWII pilots in the British Royal Air Force (RAF), which is opposed by heritage protectors, was unveiled in a park in Prague centre, Tuesday, June 17, 2014. The two-metre bronze statue of a winged lion, made by British sculptor Colin Spofforth, stands on a concrete plinth. It was donated by the British community living in the Czech Republic.
