Coolest MIG Video Ever! This is a very slick presentation for this Russian jet, showing off its thrust vector technology - and check the nice paint job.

The Mikoyan MiG-29 (Russian: МиГ-29) is a 4th generation jet fighter aircraft designed for the air superiority role in the Soviet Union. Developed in the 1970s by the Mikoyan design bureau, it entered service in 1983 and remains in use by the Russian Air Force as well as in many other nations. NATO's reporting name for the MiG-29 is "Fulcrum", which was unofficially used by Soviet pilots in service. It was developed to counter new American fighters such as the F-16 Fighting Falcon, and the F/A-18 Hornet.

In 1997, the United States purchased 21 Moldovan aircraft for evaluation and analysis, under the Cooperative Threat Reduction accord. Fourteen of the aircraft were the MiG-29S model, which is equipped with an active radar jammer in its spine and is capable of being armed with nuclear weapons. Part of the United States motive to purchase the Moldovan MiG-29s, was to prevent these aircraft from being sold to nations it deemed to be "rogue states", especially Iran. In late 1997, the MiGs were delivered to the National Air Intelligence Center (NAIC) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio. One former Moldovan MiG-29S is currently on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson, and a MiG-29UB is on display at the NAIC headquarters of the base. The fate of all but one of the former Moldovan MiG-29s is unknown, although many are believed to have been scrapped. One MiG-29 is on display at Nellis AFB, Nevada fully painted in its Soviet colors while another of the former Moldavian aircraft is located on the base in its original camouflage. At NAS Fallon NV air-park, one MiG-29 is on display and another in display at MacDill AFB in Florida minus its canopy.
