Photos of a North Korean Mig-29 operating from a highway shows the Fulcrum with a brand new color scheme.
A series of images released by North Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) show Pyongyang’s leader Kim Jong Un attending Korean People’s Army Air Force’s latest highway drills.
Among the aircraft involved in the drills there is also a Mig-29.
Interestingly, the Fulcrum sports a new color scheme: whereas the bottom of the fuselage has kept the light blue color, the top has been painted with a two-tone gray color scheme.
Here below you can see the “old” livery of North Korea’s Mig-29s.
It’s not clear whether the new livery is temporary, or it is going to become a standard within North Korea’s fleet; in 2013, KPAF changed the camouflage of some Il-76s belonging to the state-owned national flag carrier airline of North Korea Air Koryo to reinforce the flying parade over Pyongyang.

H/T to @CombatAir for the heads-up
Somehow I think the top image of the Fulcum is landing, braking parachute deployed is really gonna hike up his V1!
how dare you criticize PDRK-AF’s take off techniques?!
Looks like a ex-GDR/NVA Mig-29 with that red number…
It’s going to take a lot more than a new paint job to win a war with the South
Shame I love the high gloss look, probably really stealthy too as the radar wouldn’t stick on shiny gloss (joke) I do feel sad though as the never seem to fly with weapons, as they cant afford them poor North Koreans (again I joke).
Yeah, there is not much money left after feeding Kim Jong Un……..
No mater how you paint it, it still isn’t an F-15C.
