The commitee determined that the MiGs crashed after collision and that no technical malfunctions were found on either aircraft. Now we wait for Yutarnji and the rest of yu-media to call the pilots incompetent.
Hopefully, this will accelerat modernization plans.
Check the bottom of the page, there is a 10 min video from the exercise where the MiGs were lost, including a very good take off segment. Around 8:56 one of the pilots can be heard yelling "iskači, iskači!", meaning eject, eject, and then repeating that over the next few seconds.
Very interesting stuff.
EDIT: Can anyone make out what the ground controller says at 9:05, before he says "please, do you read me?" Was it their callsign, or something else?
Sometimes also in other ministry sites it is possible to find information relevant for national defence:

Vessel traffic monitoring and information system (VTMIS) put into trail operation
RIJEKA, January 25 2011
Croatian Prime Minister JADRANKA KOSOSR and Head of Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Croatia Paul Vandoren released today in Rijeka into trial operation Vessel Traffic Monitoring and Information System (VTMIS) which will increase safety of navigation at the Adriatic.
The establishment of this System is an obligation of the Republic of Croatia in the process of accession to the European Union. System is organized in three regional Centres for vessel traffic monitoring located in Rijeka, Split and Dubrovnik, and it's full operational application is predicted for 01 January 2012.
VTMIS guarantees reduction of the maritime accidents, improvement of action results of Search and Rescue at Sea, as well as efficiency in interventions in the case of sudden sea pollution from ships.
The integral part of this System is maritime radar system worth about five million EUR which was with 75 percent of assets financed by the European Union from the pre-accession PHARE 2006 programme, and the remainder was financed from the State Budget of the Republic of Croatia.
The System consists of ten radar stations of long range and high precision, related to coastal monitoring system fully covering approaches to major Croatian ports, internal sea waters, territorial sea and Protected Ecological and Fishery Zone.
Radars are positioned at the following locations: Sveti Martin (Rovinj), Razromir (Tribalj), Osorščica (Mali Lošinj), Vela Straža (Dugi otok), Žirje, Hum (Vis), Pleševo brdo (Lastovo), Gruj (Mljet), Labinštica (Trogir), Ilijino brdo (Konavle).
Along radars, integral part of the VTMIS is the coastal maritime system of the Automatic Identification System (AIS), maritime radio – communication system, and other systems that ensures insight into navigational circumstances at sea and which makes possible the interaction with participants of the maritime traffic.
For the needs of the Vessel Traffic Monitoring and Information System Service within the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure 32 employees are employed which were trained by representatives of Finnish, Swedish and Italian maritime administration which was entirely financed with 500.000 EUR from the pre-accession PHARE 2006 programme.
Yeah, sounded something like that. I guess its too garbeld.
Some great news. Prime Minister Kosor was present on the first public demonstration of the Army's Patria AMV capabilities which took place today at ĐĐ Specijalna vozila. 24 AMVs have been delivered to the Army with a several rolling off the production line every month. Also, very importantly, the M-84D performed a demonstration as well, including live fire on the move.
Yes, but the Article states that M-84D performed a demonstration as well, specifically live fire and smoke screen deployment on the move. I hope 84D pictures will emerge as well. Will hopefully be on Dnevnik.
