Published: 01 Sep 2016 updated: 02 Sep 2016
Our friends from the Croatian Air Force who made their debut at the Air Tattoo this year making them the 56 nation to attend returned home on Monday to a rapturous welcome. They have written to us about their Air Tattoo experience.
I would like to say one big THANK YOU for everything during last couple of days at RIAT! From the first email contact until the last goodbye on the Fairford everything was perfect. Everybody were so friendly, helpful and supportive. It has been a pleasure to be your guest. You have magnificent airshow!
If someone in Croatia didn't know what and where is RIAT, now everybody knows. When you gave us King Hussein Sword award you started domino effect in Croatia. We are everywhere, TV news, newspapers, we got two MiG-21 QRA escort from national border to Zagreb airport, there were Minister of Defense, Chief of Defense, Air Force COM, 3 ex AF COM, 30 media representatives, complete madness :) Thank you very much for the award, it will always have a very special place in our team history.
