SKYWATCH = Belgrade Aviation Academy

Like with the ranks of the military personnel I posted on Monday, I am not good at naming aircraft. All I know is that this airplane is old (duh..) and that it stands in front of the Belgrade Aviation Academy. I think it is probably yearning to make a streak in the sky like the one above, but alas....it's forever grounded.

Check out other skies on SKYWATCH

It might be old but a new plane has left it's mark in the sky above. Nice capture!

Love the juxtaposition of old and new... it does look like it is yearning to make a streak through the sky!

I'm not aviation expert, either, but this plane looks very similar to the planes we were flying when I was in the U.S. Navy (mid to late 50s)...

It's a nice shot.

Re your comment on Ocala DP: Yes, I think many stores have these kinds of security gates...but not so much in our mall here in Ocala. Perhaps Belk was just behind the times.

Super cool shot.
Sometimes being late is a time saver...I would have spent hours finding out what aircraft that is (hvala Vlado).
