MiG MiG-21/J-7 Fishbed/Mongol | 21178

Aircraft model
MiG-21MF

This MiG-21MF was captured by US troops at Tallil AB, in March 1999. It is a highly interesting example, not only because of its serial but ever more so because it wore a kill marking for an unknown Iranian aircraft shot down sometimes during the long war in the 1980s. The US troops made only one poor photograph of this aircraft before it was completely destroyed.
