Diecast Aircraft Information  Diecast Aircraft Information MetalWings Diecast Aircraft Reference by Dauntless Aviation
The MiG-29 is a twin-engine supersonic fourth generation air superiority jet fighter developed in
the Soviet Union in the 1970’s. The aircraft entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1983 and
still is in use with them  as well as equipping over twenty four other countries over the years. The
NATO designation for the MiG-29 is Fulcrum and it was designed to counter the American F-16
and F-18. The MiG-29 was first seen in the West in 1986. The MiG-29 (9-13) is designated the
Fulcrum C.


Iraqi sources have stated that on January 19, 1991 an Iraqi MiG-29 flown by Captain Jameel
Sayhood was scrambled to intercept incoming Tornados. Captain Sayhood says he climbed
above the low-flying aircraft and attacked from behind. He selected an R-60MK AAM and fired,
destroying RAF Tornado ZA467/EK. Western observers have a different version of the event.
According to them ZA467/EK was indeed shot down but not by a MiG-29 but by a SAM. On that
same day another RAF Tornado ZA396/GE, was also lost a SAM.
