Obviously there were also many international display presentations such as a Italian Eurofighter Typhoon, a Danish F-16, Hungarian Gripen or the Austrian Saab105OE. As there are other events where these can be photographed better this here is just a small collection from all of them.

 

 

 

A rather strange view in the static display were two USAF F-16 from Aviano, only a little more than ten years after the NATO attacks against Serbia. Especially if you did visit the Aeronautical Museum near Belgrade's airport before the show, were the tail of a shot-down Aviano F-16 and parts of the downed F-117 are part of the display. Furthermore traces of this war still show on the airfield's infrastructure.

In the end, the show was not that bad, but some efforts had to be made to bring back some nice stuff that took some time. And with the planned phasing out of the MiG-21 at the end of this year there will be one attraction less for the next event!
