I was present in 1991 when this MiG-29UB Fulcrum "15" was photographed to an Airshow at Baneasa Airport,Bucharest.The Fulcrum wasn't too old in RoAF,only 2 years.It was a hot and beautiful day:MiG-21,MiG-23,MiG-29,IAR-93,IAR-99 and so on and on.Too bad is that i don't have so much pictures from the event.

If you want to see an old movie about Aviation Day in Romania from 1955.Only that the language in the movie is romanian.But you will see the first fighter jets from RoAF:Iak-23 and MiG-15.

I think IAR-80 is a beautiful plane and not because it was made by romanians.Sadly we don't have an original one.In MAv. Bucharest we have an IAR-80 replica,and is not flyable.Dan i'm glad that you like the video and thank you for the comments.
