Finally up close with one of the most famous aircraft in Croatian aviation history. Flown by the country's most celebrated pilot, Rudolf "Rudi" Peresin, 26112 had defected to Klagenfurt in October 1991 while on a reconnaissance mission during the opening stages of the first ex-Yugoslav war. Interned by the Austrian authorities upon landing, 26112 had then spent the next two decades in and out of various storage depots, before being brought out for the 100th anniversary of military aviation in Austria.
