Zlin Shock Cub, ultralight replica of the famous Piper Cub, with a "fake rusty" livery.
It has excellent short field capabilities...

...and, with some headwind and an high angle of attack, it looked like it was hovering!

Here are the vintage gliders:

It was just a visitor, but I found it interesting anyway... Slepcev Storch, ultralight replica of the famous Fieseler Fi-156 Storch.

The airfield has a small open-air musuem. Unfortunately, most of the aircraft (an F-104, a G.91 and a T-33) are closely surrounded by fences and it is impossible to take clean photos of them.
Here are the other 2 gate guardians: Fokker 27 belonging to the defunct cargo airline Miniliner, based in Milan-Bergamo Orio al Serio airport.

The rusty livery is certainly eye-catching!

I agree about the Rusty aircraft - great livery and great shots of it.
