Air Force Badge - Please Help ID

Recommended Posts

Some time ago I bought a nice set of pins of various Yugoslav military schools and academies, among them was this one. If I remember well the seller wrote it's a badge of a foreign students (not sure from which country) enrolled in the Yugoslav Air Force Academy. Unfortunately I can't read the inscription so I'd be grateful if someone could help me with translation. Airplane silhouette and opened book below it do suggest it might be related to some Air Force educational institution.

Thank you very much, Chris!
I wasn't sure about the silhouette but the roundel made me think of Libya even though other countries used or still use those colors today (Egypt and Yemen for example). Many Libyans were enrolled in Yugoslav Military Academies, especially Air Force Academy, besides that a certain number of Yugoslav flight instructors were sent to Libya. It's interesting to mention that Libya purchased over 100 Yugoslav Soko G-2 Galeb jets.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
