MiG MiG-21/J-7 Fishbed/Mongol | 75

Aircraft model
MiG-21bis

Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, 1993: FABF seems to have acquired also a small number of MiG-21bis in the early 1990s, but the example seen here at Ouagadougou was inoperational already by 1993. Their current status remains unknown, just like camouflage colors and eventual additional markings on the rear part of this aircraft. Nevertheless, it seems to have been camouflaged in a similar pattern like MiG-21bis supplied to Congo-Brazzaville and Mozambique: could it be there was a 'standardized African' camouflage pattern for MiG-21bis, like there was one for all MiG-21MFs built in the early 1970s? The 'bort' number, ('75') was red, probably with a thin yellow or white outline: it is possible, however, that the outline was applied only on the right and lower sides of the digits. Any additional details about MiG-21s in Burkina Faso would be more than welcome, as until now it was unknown that the FABF operated any high-speed jets.
