Sarajevo Airport Jets

jun 2001

Aircraft on the photo is G-2 Galeb (seagull), used by Yugoslav Air Force as a trainer and light attack aircraft. The aircraft in behind is Mig-21F13. The photograph I took at Sarajevo Airport in July 1993 while serving with UNPROFOR.   Unfortunately this is the only pic that I have of the aircraft ‘on display’ at Sarajevo Airport in July 1993.   As you must appreciate, at the time I took the photograph, the housing estate Dobrinja, just across the road from the airport, was taking a lot of incoming fire and both sides were blasting away at each other with all calibres of weapons. I stayed behind the earthen berms around the airport parking lot in order to take the pic.
