One of Northern Coalition Air Force aircraft captured at Baghram by Taliban was this MiG-21FL, one of only few survivors from a batch supplied in the 1970s. The DRAAF operated at least 12 of these fighters, but most were camouflaged in brown, sand and green. At which point has this aircraft got a coat of light blue over upper surfaces remains unknown, but what was left of its camouflage by 1998 was badly worn out. Note that the lower field of the triangle on the roundel was left white - which identifies this aircraft as one flown by Massoud's forces.
