Main ramp showing the bulk of airworthy fighters left in the Abanian inventory. Mount Tomorri sets a nice backdrop to the base which has recently been brought up to NATO standard.

The base itself is very good and large and is indeed in NATO standards. However, none of planes are operational. A decision was taken for them to be destroyed a coupel of months ago. That said, Albania has been part of no conflicts since WWII. US fought in Kosovo not in Albania, just to clear things up. Albania was not part of the conflict at any time.

It's a beautiful view. You should visit it. It's real that the MIG's are not in use because of their conditions(decided the government).All of these are gift of other communist's countries of East: Russia and China. The planes are part of the past, but will live forever in the mind and heart of the Albanian citizens that had lived at that time.
Nolens volens they are part of our Great Country. Perhere Shqiptar! *Deluks,Tirana*
