Photo Comment

V-51 is the Yugoslav Air Force designation of the U-66. This is the second prototype, and as the first prototype flew 02-Dec-1966, this one will have followed shortly after that. As it still carries Yugoslav Air Force markings, it must have been phased out before 1992 when the Serbia-Montenegro Air Force was formed. It went to the Muzej Vazduhoplovstva Beograd where it is kept in the storage area. The tail and the fuselage behind it belong together. The V-51 behind it is 51145.
