Pochentong AB, near Phnom Penh, in the early 1990s. Cambodia received between 24 and 28 MiG-21bis from the USSR in the early 1980s. These saw relatively little use in the long war, most becoming derelict by the early 1990s. Four were sent to Israel for refurbishment (according to some sources also to be brought to MiG-21bis-2000 standard), but only two returned so far, due to the lack of funds. The camouflage marking shown here is that used by the Cambodian Air Force between 1989 and 1994: today, the air force is again using the markings from before 1970.
