Hawker Hurricane fighter aircraft was in Yugoslav service from 1938 to 1941 and 1944 to 1951. The
Royal Yugoslav Air Force obtained 24 of
the British fighters commencing on 15 December 1938 from early production batches, the first foreign sale of the aircraft. Twenty additional
fighter aircraft were built by
Zmaj under licence in
Yugoslavia. When the country was drawn into
World War II by the
invasion of April 1941, the aircraft achieved some successes against the
Luftwaffe, but all the Yugoslav Hurricanes were destroyed or captured during the 11-day invasion. In mid-1944, the
Yugoslav Partisans formed two
Royal Air Force squadrons, Nos.
352, which both operated Hurricane
fighter-bombers. No. 351 Squadron flew Hurricane
Mk IICs during training and was later equipped with Hurricane Mk IVs, and No. 352 briefly flew Hurricane Mk IICs during training before re-equipping with
Supermarine Spitfire Mk Vs. Both squadrons operated as part of No. 281 Wing RAF of the
Balkan Air Force, conducting ground attack missions in support of the Partisans. Hurricanes remained in service with the post-war
Yugoslav Air Force until the early 1950s. (

The Horse Fair is an oil painting on canvas completed by the French artist
Rosa Bonheur between 1852 and 1853. Depicting dealers selling horses on the streets in Paris, the work was first exhibited at the
Paris Salon in 1853. In 1887, having been held by several private collectors, the painting was donated by
Cornelius Vanderbilt II to the
Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is one of Bonheur's most popular works, such that
Queen Victoria requested a private viewing at
Buckingham Palace during the painting's 1855–1857 tour of England.
