Zagreb Airport October 2021

Post by Wissam24 »

Spent a few days in Zagreb last month, including two(ish) days at the fence with Chris Lofting. Was lucky to see two QRA scrambles (one actually real? Not sure) and ended it with the tidy bonus of a Slovenian Cougar. Sadly I didn't get to see any two-seaters which I was especially after!

A fab bunch of images, particularly the second one which shows an excellent panning technique. Wow, I didn't realise that they're still in frontline service because the only one I've ever seen is a privately-owned example here in Oz. They're a little like I am - well past their best. :wink: Thanks for sharing.
Cheers,

Thanks haha, especially when you consider how fast MiG-21s land...
