Great joke on renaming Ljubljana Airport

Slovenian main airport called Ljubljana - Brnik was renamed to Jože Pučnik airport (airport in Slovenian is Letališče). It is hart to foreign visitors to say that or even to spell it and Slovenian government decided to rename it just this was due to historical reasons (he was quite important person in the time of Slovenian independence in 1990/91 - some years earlier and later also) but mostly because Jože Pučnik was kind of a founding father of current ruling party. Despite he is dead for some years now it was stupid to name the airport after him. Slovenian have one of most important world pioneers in development of flying - Edvard Rusian (he has even the name easy to spell), but no one even thought about him. We have many other important persons with much greater historical importance to Slovenia but they just picked out hard-spelling and average name.

OK And here is the video clip of new name problem - it is played but try for yourself to spell "LETALIŠČE JOŽETA PUČNIKA" - Even most of Slovenes are not able to repeat it for 30 seconds with high speed.
