Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Post by RobertS »

Few operational photos from my archive.
All from 1982, Nalayh AB:
http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=47.7 ... 9&t=h&z=12

They had natural-metal ex-Soviet AF MiG-21PFMs and MiG-21US.
Known side-numbers in 1982:
MiG-21PFM - 001-012
MiG-21US - 101, 102
Sometimes later a few more PFMs arrived to the country, I seen photos 016,024,027...
As I know, the last training flights with the MiG-21 were monitored in 2003.

MiG-21PFM "005"

You can see the overpainted Soviet AF red-star on the tail:
