    DEFECTED MIG-21 again...

    looking well to THE photo of this Mig-21...

    I'm not sure it's really a Syrian one !!

    the orange color on the tail (& fuselage) seems to be of a EGYPTIAN one !


    isn'it ??

    let me know please,

    ETIENNE

    The flag on the tail indicates it as an Egyptian MiG-21. Syria does not usually put a roundel on the fuselage either.

    This image distributed by Reuters incorrectly as defected Syrian Mig-21 but in fact that is the Egyptian plane.

    It's Syrian. Their flag from 1972-1980 looked much like the Egyptian flag.

    Speaking of Brunei, here's a couple of Blackhawks in action, from http://www.pprune.org. Still looking for a good image of that fuselage marking on the Whirlwind...

    The tail has the present-day Syrian flag, but if the date is correct, the Egyptian-style flag would have been used. I also never heard of Syria operating the Su-7, while Egypt was a big user of the type. Egypt used the United Arab Republic flag until 1971, after Syria had withdrawn from the union. The modern Syrian flag and the UAR flag are identical.

    Try this one. By the way, I have also attached a couple of profiles that would be of great help to anyone wanting to build a model! They are for a Wessex, but they are definitely relevant. Also, I have attached another image of a Brunei Whirlwind, and several images of Brunei HS-748s. I think the green on the HS-748s is the same color referred to in the Whirlwind profiles as "Port Dickson green".

    They did after the SDW 1967 till the 90s, bolstered by Su-20s from 1972.

    The picture from Reuters shows an Egyptian MiG-21MF as a Syrian look a like to stay polite about that strange behavior of a press agentur. "June 21, 2012. REUTERS/AmmonNews/Handout"

    http://www.scramble.nl/sy.htm

    Here you can see the typical marking of a present MiG-21bis.

    Does anybody have pictures of aircraft from the air force of Upper Volta, with the red-white-black roundels and fin flashes? I am interested particularly in their C-47s, Alouette IIIs, and Cessna 150s, 172s, and 337s. I already have images of their HS-748s and Nord N-262 Fregates. Any help would be much appreciated.
