The "Graf Ignatievo Air Base" near the second-largest Bulgarian city of Plovdiv is today the only operational base for the country's fighter planes. The Bulgarian Air Force, one of the oldest in the world, was restructured in 1994, resulting in a third fighter squadron. Besides current generation MiG-29s, older airplanes of the same type are also based here. The original of this model limited to 1,500 items is not among them anymore, being retired in the 90s. It is a modern MiG-21bis with the NATO code "Fishbed-L" and the registration "345".

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21MF Fishbed

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.
