Batajnica Airshow 2012 : Serbian Air Force

On the 24th December 1912, Kingdom of Serbia has officially founded it’s Air force by forming “The command of aviation”. Doing  so, Serbia has become one of the first country in the world with military aviation, and one of the few that used aviation on actual combat sorties.

The Serbian Air Force marked it’s 100 years anniversary celebration on 2 September 2012 by hosting an international air show “Batajnica 2012”.This was one of the biggest aviation events in Serbia, with representatives from 16 countries around the world and 27 kinds of aircraft and more than 150000 visitors.

Well, I made a lot of shots during this event, to much to pack them in one blog post so I decided to split them in few posts, each with specific subject. I’ll start with this one which is dedicated to the celebrant – to the Serbian air Force and Air Defense.

  1. Bilo bi lepo videti vise slika kao sto su slike majora Savica, pa one sa tehnicarima u poslu pored J22, mislim na slike atmosfere, akcije, emocija i ljudi koji pokrecu celicne ptice.
    Ovo je subjektivna opaska, objektivno fotoalbum je babroga.
