This Day in History -MiG-21

On June 10 ,1966, the famous MiG-21, were designed for the first time in India at Ozar Airport of Nashik. MiG was a Soviet-era Russian aircraft company that specialised in the production of fighter jets. After the 1965 India-Pakistan war, India decided to scale up the procurement of MiGs, inducting many others like MiG 29, MiG 27, MiG 23 as well as the famous MiG-21s. Marred by a history of engine failures, the MiG-21 was once termed as “Flying Coffin’. Currently, the IAF is operating around 120 MiG-21 Bisons. These aircraft are expected to be phased out completely by the next decade with the introduction of aircrafts like the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) `Tejas’.
