Fishbeds, Fulcrums & Frogfoots +UPDATE

Postby DJdeRidder on Fri 06 Jan 2012, 12:38 pm

In August of last year I was fortunate enough to visit the only air force in Europe to still operate the MiG-21 Fishbed, MiG-29 Fulcrum and Su-25 Frogfoot.

Since I have a large amount of photos, I will divide them into 3 chapters, so let's start of with some Fishbeds (and Mongols):
