Hungarian Air Force - a sadness story

Post by Monox »

These airplanes brought to a halt in Hungary the Pápa AFB, in a private property. The Hungarian military one passed it over on an illegal road leadership for a Ukrainian metal dealer, who destroys them soon. (Understand it: all were stolen from Hungaria AF.) I wish to claim a memory with these few photos the 67 pieces MiG-21, 5 pieces Su-22 and 3 pieces MiG-23, for the bygone Hungarian Airforce.

Some machinery has already resolved the fate, the fate of the others is uncertain. I've not sure the cutting is no longer worth it. Around $ 70,000 and 100,000 for sale to anyone at any price.

The flight back during practice (some sources mention spool) flaps gave (or out forgotten), which makes the machine has undergone little height and crashed at the end of the runway.
The pilot died.
