Manage episode 278950033 series 2820824
In this episode I was joined by Lt Marko Novkovic, number 6 in the Croatian Krila Oluje - ‘Wings of Storm’. Tragically, two weeks after our interview, Marko was killed in a training accident, unrelated to the aerobatic team. This jovial and enthusiastic conversation is now recorded as a summary of Marko's background and achievements.
The Krila Oluje is the Croatian National Aerobatic Display Team. Formed in July 2004 used the Pilatus PC9 aircraft, the team are based at 93rd Military base, near Zadar.
In 2009 they increased the team to a 6-ship display team, thus adding more complex manoeuvres and a synchro pair to add to the excitement. The team have flown in various international airshow events and have won several awards including, the Royal International Air Tattoo award for best display team during 2016.
Rest in Peace Marko!
