Elasmobranchii Subclass of fishes

Elasmobranchii is a subclass of Chondrichthyes or cartilaginous fish, including sharks, rays, skates, and sawfish. Members of this subclass are characterised by having five to seven pairs of gill clefts opening individually to the exterior, rigid dorsal fins and small placoid scales on the skin. The teeth are in several series; the upper jaw is not fused to the cranium, and the lower jaw is articulated with the upper. The details of this jaw anatomy vary between species, and help distinguish the different elasmobranch clades. The pelvic fins in males are modified to create claspers for the transfer of sperm. There is no swim bladder; instead, these fish maintain buoyancy with large livers rich in oil.

Gill slit Individual opening to a gill

Gill slits are individual openings to gills, i.e., multiple gill arches, which lack a single outer cover. Such gills are characteristic of cartilaginous fish such as sharks and rays, as well as deep-branching vertebrates such as lampreys. In contrast, bony fishes have a single outer bony gill covering called an operculum.

Knjaževac Airport

Knjaževac Airport was situated north of Knjaževac, 500 m north of the village of Minićevo, on the right side of the Knjaževac-Zaječar road and railway. The airport was opened on 19 September 1989 and it was designed for sport flights airplanes, gliders and parachuting jumps, and especially for ultra light aircraft. The surrounding area is very attractive because of the clean nature, it had a large potential for aero tourism in the Knjaževac municipality. The two pilot zones "Mali izvor" and "Debelica" were near the airport. Flights were controlled from Niš Constantine the Great International Airport. The airport was closed in 1996, when the local government returned the land to previous owners in an attempt to stop the growing displeasure about the situation in the country. What remains of the airport is an old hangar which is not in use anymore and the aircraft that was used at the airport, PZL-104 Wilga 35A, which stands like a monument to a forgotten era of Yugoslavian aviation. The aircraft has not been flown since 1996, and since the airfield was destroyed in a matter of hours, it was unable to fly to the nearest working airport. During the years it was torn apart by thieves and all that remains now is a shell of a dead plane. The main pilot in charge of the airfield and the Knjaževac Aero Club was Velibor Antonić. The last flight in his career was in the very same Wilga 35A.
