Shenyang J-6, MiG-21MF
@ Vietnam People’s Air Force Museum- Hanoi, Vietnam
I was able to tour this museum during a family trip in 2008. Besides the $1.20 USD admission fee, I had to pay an additional $.30 USD for a photo permit. Some 50 countries over four continents have flown the MiG-21, considered the most-produced supersonic jet aircraft in aviation history. First flown in 1955, the MiG-21 was the first Soviet plane to reach Mach 2. It was in production from 1959 to 1985. The first MiG-21s were delivered to North Vietnam directly from the Soviet Union in April 1966. Retired from Chinese service, the VPAF still operates the J-6, a Chinese built version of the MiG-19 Farmer. Nikon D70 w/28-85mm, 2016 re-edit with Aperture.
