The single-engine G-2 Galeb (en.: gull) was the first Yugoslavian jet to be mass produced. Production of this training, reconnaissance and ground-attack jet began in 1965 and the aircraft was initially built for the Yugoslav Air Force only. However, models were later exported to Libya and Zambia. A total of 248 aircraft of the two-seater Galeb were built by manufacturer Soko in what is now Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The Galeb features a straight wing and the wheels retract into the wings rather than the fuselage, allowing for a controlled landing even on rough runways. The G-2 is generally very forgiving and easy to maintain.

Making an appearance in AIRPOWER16’s Static Display is the Galeb G-2 with the registration YU-YAH.
