'MiG-nificent' Display Returns to RIAT
Published: 01 May 2018 updated: 04 May 2018
A Romanian Air Force MiG-21 LanceR will return to the Air Tattoo flying display this summer! After an absence of 17 years, last displaying at RAF Cottesmore at the 2001 Air Tattoo and on static display at the 2005 show, the MiG 21 will make the journey to the UK to join RAF100 celebrations.
Romania operates a fleet of around 25 of the aircraft, which are slowly being replaced by F-16s purchased from Portugal.
Romania's confirmation is another addition to a strong list of participating nations that confirms the 2018 Air Tattoo as the international celebration of RAF100.
