Two F-86 Sabre fighter jets are located in Bitola, North Macedonia

The jets were originally stationed at the Bitola Air Base, which was a major Macedonian air force base during the Cold War. The base was closed in 1999, and the jets were left abandoned. They are a reminder of the city’s history as a military base, but their condition is poor.

In recent years, the jets have become a popular target for vandals. They have been spray-painted with graffiti, and some parts have been removed.

Know Before You Go

The fighter jets are accessible to the public.
