Camouflage and painting

MiG-29 18101, Serbia, early 2007, before overhaul. Serbian markings.

2008: MiGs were painted in Batajnica with grey scheme (on 18101 and 18301 more greyish and lighter, on 18105 and 18108 more blueish).
First overhauled L18 18101 was shown to public 1st June 2008 by general Djukanovic in the airshow in Cenej airfield near Novi Sad.
There's a minor differences between aircraft: gray or black numbers on fins, grey or darkgrey roundels with Serbian Cross and slightly different shapes of grey blotches.

Not by accident, Serbian MiGs were painted in trendy MiG-35 style.
