The origins of the MiG-21 can be traced back to the swept-wing Ye-2 in 1954. Its successor the Ye-4 first flew on 16 June, 1955 and featured the delta-wing configuration so synonymous with the “Fishbed”. After years of development, the design eventually entered service with the VVS as the MiG-21F in 1959. Since that time, over 11,000 aircraft have been built, serving with nigh on 60 air forces. All variants of the MiG-21 are fair game here, including the license-built Chengdu J-7 “Fishcan”.
Runs from 1 October 2019 to 26 January 2020.
