The first official Soviet air show was held in 1933. They flew 5 IL-16 aircraft, 4 were painted red and the lead aircraft remained an olive green. In 1934 the exhibition moved to Tushino Airfield outside Moscow. After WWII the Soviets began to use Yak-15s, MiG-15s and MiG-21s with the upper half of the fuselage painted red. Most aircraft were drawn from the 176th Air Regiment who later became the 234th AR based at Kubinka in 1952. The last Soviet airshow took place at Domodedovo Airfield in 1967 using MiG-21PFM.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21PFM 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.

A G-P9 cannon pod with hand-painted 23mm twin-barrel 23mm can be seen below the cockpit. The wing is crafted of solid metal, and structural details can be seen inside the wheel wells and inboard gear doors. Each wingtip has an integrated fence and air date sensors. Ordnance includes removable fuel tanks and K-13A air-to-air missiles.
