Boeing 707-324C * Retired *
One Boeing 707-324C (not -347C) 'acquired' from Uganda Air Cargo in 1991. In 1991 it was actually being used by Uganda Air Cargo to smuggle arms into Zagreb, in contravention of the UN arms embargo. On 31 August 1991 the aircraft was intercepted by JRV MIG-21s and forced to land at Batajnica, where it was impounded. It was promptly given a JRV serial and put into service ferrying military equipment back to Serbia from the break-away republics. In the spring of 1992 the aircraft was grounded at Batajnica (Nis?) amid a series of ownership disputes. In January 1997 the aircraft was reported sold to Balkh Airlines of Afghanistan and given the registration YA-GAF. In March of that year it was flown to Ostende Airport in Belgium and has remained there until this day.
