 91 Zrakoplovna Baza Zagreb-Pleso (Croatia)

On 8th and 9th July 2002 the author was given the permission to visit Zagreb-Pleso Air Base of the Croatian Air Force.


Five aircraft were lined up on the flightline, ...


... among them a single MiG-21UM.


Pre-flight checks are done by conscripts under supervision of an experienced technician.


Walkaround of the pilot.


With full afterburner this MiG-21bis is heading to the training area.


The Croatian pilots are experts in soft landing.


What else could be seen ...

Pleso also is the base of the Croatian Mi-24.


We wish to thank all members of Croatian Air Force, who made our visit possible.
