Batajnica Airshow 2012, Serbia

Post by P.Terlouw »

Last weekend was the 100th Anniversary of the Serbian Air Force held at Batajnica airbase, just west of Belgrade. This Air Force operates the remains of the Yugoslavian Air Force which broke up after the war 10 years ago. Here an impression of the show.

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

12. civil registered Galeb G2

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

14. another civil registered Galeb G2
Image

15. another view of the MiG-29M2
Image

16. famous Striji pass

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
