Ex Yugoslavian Gazelle 12660 as it appeared at Golte on 8th July 1991.

These consist of the Slovene TO badge on the fuselage boom, and a Slovenian coat-of-arms on the tail. The 'TO' and '001' serialling and the word 'VELENJE' (COMMAND/HEADQUARTER on South Slavic language) are applied in White. On June 28th, 1991 it defected from Yugoslavia to Slovenia; crew: Major Joze Kalan and Senior Master Sergeant Bogomir Stupar. Look also Yugoslavia AF section.
