This issue celebrates the centenary of the first Slovenian powered flight.

Edvard Rusjan (1886–1911) was a Slovene aircraft constructor and aviator. His first flight was near Campagnuzza, Italy on November 25, 1909 in Eda I, a biplane of his own design. Rusjan died in Beograd during a promotional tour through Balkan cities when his airplane's wing broke during flight and he crashed into Kalemegdan hill.

The Maribor airport and asteroid 19633 Rusjan are named after him.
