    Was the plane 34 years old?
    Was the MiG-21 still produced in 1986?

      "Bis" was riveted back in 84 for export to Gorky. That's for sure. I know for sure that in the 83rd there was a regiment of 21s in Marculesti (Moldova) In the early 90s, I still saw them take off from the factory airfield. But I didn't know what kind of car.

      As far as I understand, you haven’t heard of Bison? This is the 3rd generation. Google it and you will be in luck.

        About "Bizon" I have not only heard. Only now the MiG-21bis-UPG made its first flight in 1998, and the crashed plane is clearly not Bizon.

          It is very difficult to judge by the photo from the site, the quality is so-so.

    While reading the note, I hoped that I would now read about the rescue of the pilot. It's a pity. It would be an honor to shake his hand. Eternal memory, condolences to loved ones. The Kingdom of Heaven to his soul.

    Yeah ....
    Rosenbaum has a song about pilots, where these words:
    Who knew you yesterday? Nobody.
    And today everyone knows.
    We drink a hundred without clinking glasses.
    Rest in peace to you, officer!


    The deceased can be said with these words: Rest in peace to you, officer

    Whenever the catapult does not work, they say he tried to take the plane away. It is clear that the pilot will direct the plane away from the settlement, but what actually happened and why the catapults work so poorly on this model?
