Modernization in Malaysia since 1998. In-flight refueling probe installed.

In 2006 photos of MiG-29NUB ; , using by Strizhi aerobatic team with blue number #80 on air intakes and with traces of Malaysian markings "M43-10". What it mean? All the time (1998-2005) number "M43-10" was on one-seater MiG-29N!

Malaysian MiGs were in standard grey-green camouflage with low-visibility markings, about 2005-2006 they are overhauled and repainted in overall grey with colourful markings.
