The origins of the MiG-21 for sale can be traced back to the experiences of Russian jet aircraft over Korea.  Although maneuverability was still an important attribute in a fighter aircraft, so was the need for speed and climb performance.  With that in mind, engineers designed the airplane to fly at almost 1,400 MPH and climb at 58,000 feet per minute.

The greatest shortcoming of the first production aircraft were their relatively short range.  The model F added a 108 gallon center line drop tank in recognition of the problem.  Other upgrades included a redesigned forward fuselage to accommodate more powerful radars and a more efficient and powerful engine.  In 1959 a modified MiG-21 for sale, the Ye-66, set a speed record of 1,484 mph.

John Caraci emailed us his review of his MiG-21 for sale by Airworld Modellbau:

"I really like my MiG-21 for sale from Airworld Modellbau. It looks fantastic just standing still, and looks like the real aircraft while doing low passes over the runway. It has virtually unlimited vertical performance, rock-steady flight, fast aileron rolls, and can fly knife edge and inverted with little fuss. Like most jet fighters it needs a straight in approach, with its speed up, to avoid tip stalls while landing. However, its landing gear is built solid and is up to the fast landings, while the jet tracks straight and true. If you are looking for a great turbine jet, you want the MiG-21 for sale from Airwold Modellbau."

Thank you very much John, for telling us about your Airworld Modellbau MiG-21 for sale. We appreciate your comments.
