Aircraft Overview:

The G-2 Galeb is a reliable light attack jet known for being the first indigenous Yugoslavian aircraft to enter service production. Although it saw limited export success outside of Yugoslavia, the G-2 Galeb remains in service today 50 years after its maiden flight, a testament to the endurance and reliability of the design. Although its primary purpose was (and is) to provide basic and intermediate training, the G-2 Galeb achieved fame as a favourite mount of many American "antique" warplane collectors. Although they only remain in service with three air forces, the Galeb designs inspired a number of successful variants, attack aircraft and trainers which have appealed to a wide number of air forces.
