Having virtually no military aircraft , during the Balkan wars the Croatian air force seized many civil aircraft. At least four PA-18s were seized, none of which ever carried any markings. They were returned to civil operators after hostilities ended.
This registration was twice cancelled from the register after a mishap. One in 1970 and one in 1975. Due to the repairs there is some doubt about the correct construction number. It is also quoted as 18-2076.
