All the photos were taken at the public area on Sunday where all display aircraft parked in front of the crowd after their display. The Saturday was advertised as a media-day, but turned out to be a farce and more like a family-day with crowds overflowing the airfield.

Here a few more:

11. MiG-29A Fulcrum
Image

12. civil registered Galeb G2
Image

13. MiG-21 being chased by two MiG-29's
Image

14. another civil registered Galeb G2
Image

15. another view of the MiG-29M2
Image

16. famous Striji pass
Image

17. a very nice formation of a MiG-21 and three MiG-29's
Image

18. the Russian pilots proved to be very popuplar among the crowd
