Hi all,

Some shots from the past, maybe not exactly from the cold war era but right after it ends (early nineties).

Great shots, Another vote for No9. :clap:
Watched the video, Is it me or has the Mig 21 have a high landing speed? Judging by the marbles on the road they seem to be landing at a fair rate of knots.

Well...that is a really narrow road.
You can see some landing MiG-21PF also, with higher landing-speed. PF had the older type of flaps(without the blowing-system).
