Mikoyan Guryevich MiG-29 Fulcrum A

May 2014

The MiG-29 was developed in the 1970’s as a frontline air superiority fighter, entering Soviet Air Force service in 1982.  This has been a very successful export aircraft, currently in service with 26 countries at this time.  In 1997, the United States purchased 21 Moldovan MiG-29 aircraft for threat assessment purposes.  Many of the airframes were scrapped with several ending up to museums like this example.
