The Macedonian Army and the Defense Ministry will commemorate nine years since the tragic transport helicopter crash in which 11 officers were killed. They were returning from Bosnia, where they served in the Althea European Union led peacekeeping mission.

Army representatives will lay flowers at their monument in the Straso Pindzur army barracks near the Petrovec airport and air base.

Defense Minister Zoran Jolevski will also visit the crash site, near Katlanovo, where the helicopter crashed under dense fog conditions.
