Is a crazy good livery... I think this is from when JAT was under embargo (91-94) and had to stop their flights to New York. Most people from Serbia and Montenegro at this time flew through Macedonia or Bulgaria/Romania, so I guess they thought there would be a market. Probably stopped themselves just in time as the sanctions were lifted and their market reduced radically.
During the same time, Croatia Airlines was also planning to begin flights to JFK with a DC-10, even published it in one of their timetables. Flights never happened though. JAT never restarted their JFK flights either, far as I know (even though they are in the 1996 OAG).
Yeah unfortunately its bogus. I remember when this postcard came out and the buzz it generated. This happened in pre-Photoshop days so I'm not sure how they pulled it off. When everybody found out it was fake a lot of people got pissed. How ironic it will now be flying for real in our simulators twenty years later!
