    I grew up loving to hate the MiG-21. It makes a good villain but it was the numbers that made it fearsome.

    Last flight for them maybe...my country still uses Mig21 but no so much due to the fact that the air force is very very low on funds...

    I've got to work on a UTI - I have a lot of respect for the aircraft. It served well even though most of the time it was on the "receiving end."

    I have a friend that flew the A6 in an evaluation against the first Mig 21 acquired by the US during the Viet Nam war. It was an interesting story. The Mig had much better performance than our military expected.
