Remarks

** Aircrafts were from Ukraine's depots, overhauled, modernized and repainted in Ukraine. Camouflage is similar to Turkmenistani MiGs, also overhauled in Ukraine.
*** Haji Zeynalabdin Tagiyev (1821/23/28 - 1924) was an Azeri industrial oil magnate and philanthropist.


MiG-29 #$01, Azerbaijan, 2007. When aircraft was painted, the sign on right fin was painted as on the drawing, later was repainted (changed left side with right). Drawing accuracy: high, but it's a compilation of two aircrafts #01 (right side, all upper surfaces) with #06 (left side).


Former Soviet republic was engaged in years 1988-1994 war with Armenia on Nagorny Karabakh (Upper Karabakh). Azerbaijan hold Karabakh and a piece of a territory of Armenia.

Russia support rather Armenia (1998/1999 Russian base in Erebuny was equipped with MiGs-29, but Russians are for stabilising a situation), and Azerbaijan seek support in Ukraine and Georgia.


January 2008 MiG-29UB crashed in the Caspian sea 60 kilometres off shore. Fakhraddin Asgarov and Afgan Aslanov died in the accident.
