The Ratno Vazduhoplovstvo i Protivvazdušna Odbrana red stars

Post by coldwater » Fri Dec 09, 2011 1:43 pm

A new adventure with a difficult old Air Force: The RviPVO
In this topic I post some photos of the aircrafts when it RViPVO Yugoslav nation was still united in many republics.
Even for this Air Force the go ahead from Belgrade came to me after many months of waitingeven though I had already 'made ​​some site inspections privately but looking good to take anyphotos because' there was not joking at all! In spite of the various bases visited cleared many times I had to clash with the political commissar and commander of the shooting that hinderedmore 'of a Commander Wing .At that time was really very hard to take pictures and here I was the first "the other party "to make a very interesting scoop .The French monthly AIR FAN gave a big space to one of my article about this subject.
My apologize for the quality of some photos but they are taken from slides K25/64 and with 2 different scanners!!!More forward more pictures!! Sorry again for the watermark-

Very rare photo's indeed!
One remark though, that copy thing in the middle of the photo's
ruins the photo as a whole!!!
