MiG-21PFM No. 7207 c/n 94A7207 was completed in July 1968 and delivered to the Czechoslovak Air Force on May, 1968. From 1987 – 1991 the aircraft was Bort 7207 with the 11 SLP (11. stihaci letecky pluk – 11th Fighter Air Regiment) 3.letka (3rd Squadron) stationed at Zatec AFB, Czechoslovakia. In 1993 former Czechoslovakia was divided into two separate countries, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. That same year 7207 was transferred to the Slovak AF and in 1994 put into storage at Sliac, AB and was later scrapped.
Designed as a successor to the Soviet Union’s family of early MiG jet fighters, the MiG-21 was first flown on February 14, 1955. This supersonic jet fighter was the first Soviet aircraft to successfully combine fighter and interceptor characteristics. Its delta wing design gave it the ability to climb quickly and its light loading further improved its performance, making it possible for a skilled pilot to successfully engage in dogfights with contemporary enemy fighters. Today, more than 50 years after its introduction, the MiG-21 still serves the air forces of many nations and has become the most-produced supersonic jet in history.
