Wings of Storm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia from
Wings of Storm (Croatian: Krila oluje) is the aerobatic display team of the Croatian Air Force. The group was officially formed in the spring of 2005, but the group first performed on June 23, 2004 during the European sailing championship hosted that year in Zadar.
Their first official performance was on August 5, 2005 over the city of Knin during the Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day celebrations, as well as the 10th anniversary of Operation Storm. The performance was a huge success. At the time, the group flew four planes, Pilatus PC-9M, but grew to current five by autumn of the same year. The current flying program lasts for about seventeen minutes.
All pilots are flying instructors in Croatian Air Force, and the team is based at Zemunik airbase. The base is also used in training of future pilots. The team often trains over Zadar, the city where they first performed in 2004.
The team were expected to perform at the Malta International Airshow both in 2006 and 2007, but cancelled on both occasions.

The town council will consider a resolution on Monday that would outlaw flight training, including recurrent training, at Valkaria Airport (X59). The ban comes in the form of a zoning amendment that's bound to catch the attention of the FAA, since the airport has received federal funding and the agency frowns on limiting aeronautical activity at such facilities.
