The Polish MiG-21s we have written about a few days ago seem to have already reached Florida to provide threat simulation services from Eglin Air Force Base.

A photo shows one of the 25 MiGs bought back in September, that looks nothing like any other aggressor jet: the paint scheme is surely not based on the ex-Soviet Su-27s nor Iranian F-14s.

The MiGs have served with the Polish Air Force for nearly half the century; they are now going to be flown against U.S. top fighter jocks during simulated Top Gun-like air-to-air engagements.
