Also 33 black (ukrainian An32) was seen outside the platform and another Ukrainian An32 was seen inside the old hangar (seen from my seat on board the flight back home). This was a short window to see, but it was most likely one of the 2 ex croatian an32s, with clearly the ukrainian roundel on the tail. No number read sadly

3 Rafales were seen in the hangars:
Hangar 1: 152
Hangar 2: 171
Hangar 3: Nose of a single seater
On Friday 150, 151 and 171 were read off in sheds 1,2 and 3. Both 150 and 151 flew that day.

Also both Croat An-32’s were seen. A MiG-21bis was seen next to 167 on Friday evening (previously in box 7) but was gone on Saturday afternoon so was probably #133 which was towed to the static display.

Was 151 a misread as 152 then?

064 was the PC-9 that landed early.

Both Croatian An-32Bs could be seen in the opened hangar behind the Ukrainian An-32P. They definitely did not have the Ukr roundel on their tails yet, still looking unmarked like this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/53104577@ ... ateposted/ CroAF numbers 707 and 727.

I agree, there was just a spot where the Croatian flag was overpainted.

151 flew so unless it flew from
another parking spot I would say our sighting was correct.

Than I probably saw it wrong. Like I said, I was only able to see it for a brief second from the plane.

Thanks!
Did anyone identify the UH-60M on the mil ramp which probably broke down and got replaced by a Mi-171Sh for the pilot rescue demo?

Do you mean at Lucko or at Pleso? UH-60M #231 which was on the static arrived on Friday afternoon. The pilot rescue helicopters operated from Lucko where indeed a second UH-60 was outside along with Mi-171Sh #220 which did the demo instead of the Blackhawk. I think I recall the #232 was the Blackhawk at Lucko.

I didn’t see a second Blackhawk at Pleso.

A second Black Hawk at Pleso was indeed seen through the lens from the perimeter fence line during the show.
Approximate parking location: 45°44'13.0"N 16°04'33.6"E

No, it was outside near Mi-171Sh #220. People were walking around the blackhawk, so I assume it broke down and the Mi-171 was its substitute for the show.

Many thanks. We were there about 0900 L hours and they just opened the hangar with the 1 inside. Presume this is the one they towed out (with 2 believed to be at Pleso) and the other current Lucko one in the static.
