Type: MiG-21 SPS
Registration: 937 / 22+41
Serial: 94A5602

MiG-21 was first displayed in public at Tushino on June 24, 1956. The design was as a result of evaluations in USSR after the Korean War and the need to provide a short-range interceptor.

More than 11.000 examples of the MiG-21 were produced in 20 different versions, and the type was at one time the most widely-used Soviet combat aircraft. The first operational model built in greater numbers was the MiG-21F. It was a short-range day fighter without a radar.

The aircraft is a MiG-21 SPS with an operational history from DDR. The SPS version has a seach and track radar, RATOG (rocket assisted take off unit) and a flap blowing system (SPS) wich reduce the normal landing speed by some 25 mph.
