MiG MiG-21/J-7 Fishbed/Mongol | AF601

Aircraft model
MiG-21UM

Lod, Israel, early 1997 or 1998: in the early 1990s, all the 13 surviving Zambian MiG-21s - including two MiG-21UMs - were refurbished and then upgraded to Lancer standard at IAI, in Israel. Although photographed with their markings and serials covered, the position of these clearly indicated these aircraft to have been in use by the ZAF&ADC, even if their serials were not confirmed ever since (i.e. it remains unknown if the ZAF re-serialled its MiGs after these were returned from Israel - or not). The aircraft remain in service ever since, and should still be based at the military side of Lusaka IAP. <br><br> MiG-21's are not longer stationed at Lusaka IAP. Base is home to AVRO 748 x 2, UH-1N x 1, and Y-12 x 4. Most probably MiG-21's are at Livingstone Air Base.
