Remarks

First MiGs delivered shortly before revolution in 1989, but first flights in 1990 with Romanian roundels. Never fly with socialist Romanian star.


MiG-29, Romania about 1989-1990. Drawing accuracy: it's a schema of the markings and standard camouflage, on basis of the MiG-29 #50.


Three destroyed 1990-1994:
#47 1990 (?)
#29 1992
#41 1994

To replace losses, five MiGs were bought from Russia and Moldova.


In 2000 one (#67) served as demonstrator of modernization programme, called Sniper, prepared by DASA (Germany), Elbit (Israel) and Romanian aeronautical company Aerostar S.A., Bacău. Due to lack of money, programme wasn't realised.


MiG-29 "Sniper", Romania 2000. State in early 2000: stripe on wings and fuselage was initially grey-white [sic!], in Summer 2000 (ILA exhibition in Berlin) all white. White number 67 was on intake, later (with a different numerals shape) on fin, replaced by round logo. Small area underside is not clearly visible on photos, so may be different a little. Drawing accuracy: 100% (except small area underside).


One was overhauled in about 2001 (#75).


Overhauled MiG-29 #75, Romania 2001. Drawing accuracy: 100%.

In 2003 official end of the service in the Romanian air force; since then MiGs are parked in open air at Constanta airfield (at least 12 MiGs), probable not flightworty.
