KRILA OLUJE (WINGS OF STORM) ABOVE SLIAČ

17. April 2017 6 Aktuality

We do believe that during International Air Fest Days SIAF 2017 the weather will show ”its nicer side”. In spite of this, we will be pleased by the Wings of Storms above Sliač Airport. Aviation enthusiasts are quite sure that the Wings of Storms is the Croatian aerobatic team flying airplanes Pilatus PC-9M. The team was officially introduced to the  public in 2005 and since then 16 pilots have flown in the team in different positions.

Who  the Wings of Storms are

Members of the team are pilots-intructors from the 93rd Military Airbase Zemunik. Similarly to our former aerobatic team Biele Albatrosy pilots of Krila Oluje are engaged as pilots – instructors and aerobatic flying is “only“ a hobby for them. Despite they are worth seeing. Ever year they are embellishment of aviation days at home and abroad. It is proved by their latest success at Air Tatoo in Faiford, England. While debuting there they received the award the King Hussein Memorial Sword for the best flying demonstration.

The team have overcome also more difficult period of time. In March 2015 the requests of all six pilots to leave the military service almost paralysed the team shortly before their 10th anniversary. According to several media Qatar made the pilots an offer too good to refuse. Fortunately the team did not resign themselves to their fate and so we are given the opportunity to enjoy their performance at Sliač Airport from the 26 to 27 August 2017. The team will be led by first lieutenant Darko BELANČIĆ.
