    These are some of the photos that I took of the airplanes exibited there. Ignore me in the photos, for I'm not a photogenic person.

    Some nice planes. Hopefully they can spend some cash and restore them a bit.

    Good stuff.

    Not sure, I'm wondering about the story behind it as well now having seen that picture.

    Thanks. The plane in the first photo is a J-21 Jastreb ( Hawk ), a light ground attack aircraft. Could you tell me which helicopter is that, because I forgot. Here are some more photos.

    From Wiki

    "The first overseas deployment was to the Balkans, from July to November 1995, under the name Nomad Vigil. Operations were based in Gjader, Albania. Several Predators were lost during Nomad Vigil.

    One aircraft (serial 95-3017) was lost on April 18, 1999, following fuel system problems and icing.[14]
    A second aircraft (serial 95-3019) was lost on May 13, when it was shot down by a Serbian Strela-1M surface-to-air missile over the village of Biba. A Serbian TV crew videotaped this incident.[15]
    A third aircraft (serial number 95-3021) crashed on May 20 near the town of Talinovci, and Serbian news reported that this, too, was the result of anti-aircraft fire.[15][16]

    The Helo is a Russian built Mil Mi-4 "Hound".

    Thanks for the info Adler, I suspected as much to be a Russian heli, for it has tail section very similiar to that of a Mi-8. There was also an F-117 cockpit and a piece of its wing among those war 'trophies', I'll post it later. Yup that is a tail of an F-16.

    Nice photos Milos.
    Did you take any photos of the Soko J-20 Kraguj?
    I'm looking long time for a good walkaround of this bird...

    The last photo is of a wing from some kind of American plane. Sorry for the bad angle, it was in a location where you need a special permit and I didn't have it.

    Does anyone know which plane is that wing from?

    all the ww2 planes, including hurricanes and a bf 109 are painted with the former yoguslavian socialist republic air force, isnt that correct ? do you know if they came to the museum painted like that or if that was a idea of someone of the museum ?

    i just think unfair you guys have a lot of mig-21´s ! why dont you give one of those to brazil huh ?

    :lol:

    whel the last photo ? i dont know... could be a u.s. navy plane ?

    Hi Milos, thanks for the photos!

    Maybe not a wing but half a horizontal stabiliser with a bullet fairing? But this doesn't explain the US insignia and its orientation.

    Just a thought.

    Neat stuff, Milos. :thumbleft: It looks like there is some good lighting in that museum, which are more often old hangars with little light.
