By far the biggest attraction of the 2010 Lučko Airshow: a modern replica of the first Croatian aircraft, the Penkala P-3. Designed by famed inventor Slavoljub Penkala, the P-3 had attempted to take off in 1910, but never made it beyond a few hops due to some design flaws. Intending to right that, the CA-10 was conceived as "modernized" P-3, modified with today's knowledge (and a 80 HP Rotax). Unfortunately, it had not been flight-ready by the time of the show... as of mid-Sept registered 9A-XCA.
