Rudolf Perešin’s jet will return to Croatia after 28 years

According to Region Spielberg the MiG-21 at Zeltweg will soon return to Croatia

Anyone wishing to see live the MiG 21, with which a Yugoslav soldier deserted in 1991, still has the opportunity until the end of next week, after which she will return from the Military Aviation Museum to Croatia

On 25 October 1991 Rudolf Perešin flew his MiG-21R from the Željava Air Base and turned to Austria and landed at Klagenfurt airport. For several years the jet was the subject of political clashes between Croatia and Austria, but after that it seems that Perešin’s jet will soon return home.
