At Homeland War museum we filmed the last (French) review there was also this wreckage of MIG-21 our boys shot down. He was from Air Base Željava, the largest underground airport and military air base in the former Yugoslavia, and one of the largest in Europe. The complex was designed and built to sustain a direct hit from a 20-kiloton nuclear bomb, equivalent to the one dropped on Nagasaki. http://www.forgottenairfields.com/croat ... a-s66.html
MiG 21 bis K (17130) - 6.10.1991. from Željava Air Base (117th Aviation Corps) went to the attack on the Army barracks Oštarija I. Downed by the anti-aircraft detachment of Croatian National Guard using Browning 12.7mm machine guns.
