    During the first weekend in April 2019, a small group of 148th Fighter Wing Airmen, along with two Minnesota Air National Guard F-16s, headed for Zagreb International Airport, with the sole intention in creating an opportunity to have cross-talk with key leaders from the Croatian military, currently flying MiG 21 and are looking to acquire F-16s. Colonel Christopher Blomquist, Commander of the 148th FW, as well as Colonel Troy Havener, vice commander of the 148th FW, were on the ground to engage key leaders of the Croatian military. Watch this BROLL package as the group prepares the aircraft for launch, engages members of the Croatian military, as well as a large number of spectators to watch the launch and recovery of two F-16s and MiG-21s.

    This encounter was part of an event was held through the National Guard State Partnership Program between Croatia and the Minnesota National Guard. The relationship was started in 1996 and the countries have conducted multiple engagements throughout the two decades. The program has focused on strengthening several key military capabilities including cyber defense and security and defense support to civil authorities. (Air National Guard Video by Tech. Sgt.
