On the third day of the bombing of the two pilots they went on a mission together. One survived. For the youngest pilot "miga 29" Zoran Radosavljevic showed that it was the last flight.
"Because his last words were following my order:" Run away, rockets at us, "he said," I'm coming up against the clouds ", I think he's flying the plane. The gellers, it was exactly possible to see where the rocket struck and this happened half a meter or a meter above his head, "explains Slobodan Peric, colleague Zoran Radosavljevic.
"When I told him," Son, not like God, I beg you to fly, "he said," Bre, mother, you know you have a son who is a pilot. "I do not drive with a tractor, but with a plane", he recalls. Rada Radosavljevic, the mother of Zoran Radosavljevic.

"Paja comes and says:" My mother is your boy, you will not be guilty, I will. "We heard him, we heard part of the conversation with the order, that 10-12 minutes lasted and then silence. The last thing we heard was: & # 39; They have me & # 39 ;, "says Zeljko Tasendic, colleague Milenko Pavlovic.
The son of Milenkovic, Srdjan Pavlovic, says that when he saw four colleagues from daddy who went to their entrance, he then assumed that something was wrong.
