Flying colours
Unusual camouflage on a Croatian-operated An-2 used for paratroop training at Vrsar in Istra. On the nose is the Black Martin badge, the symbol of Slavonia.
Mil Mi-8 transport helicopter operated by the Serbian Krajina Militia with the Militia marking on the rear fuselage.
Unidentified Croatian Air Force MiG-21bis, one of two that defected from the JRV base at Ponikve and now based at Zagreb.
New fin marking for the Ukrainian Air Force seen on one of the MiG-29s that visited the London Ontario International Airshow in the summer.
'Jugoslovensko Ranto Vazduhoplovstvo' Orao in the markings applied to aircraft of the 'new' Yugoslav Air Force and carrying an AGM-65A Maverick ASM.
The ex-Warsaw Pact air force of Bulgaria has adopted a new roundel formed by the national colours of red white and blue. It is seen here applied to a MiG-23UB and two L 29 Delfin trainers at Dobro Slavci air base near Sofia. The close proximity of the fuselage and fin marking would appear to render one or the other redundant and it will be interesting to see if this is changed in the future.
Top: Serbian Krajina Militia insignia on the side of an SA.342L Gazelle and, bottom, Serbian coat of arms on the door of the same helicopter.
