The Krasnodar Higher Aviation Training Facility was formed in 1938 and held various names over the years. The objective was to train Soviet pilots to fly aircraft of the day. From 1970 until 1992 the aircraft of choice for training was the MiG-21 with the MiG-21SMT in service from the late 1970s until 1980 the early 1980s. These aircraft not only trained Soviet pilots but pilots from Vietnam, Angola, Cuba and many other countries Soviet operating Soviet aircraft. The marking on the aircraft nose is an Excellent Aircraft Award. Designed as a successor to the Soviet Union's family of early MiG jet fighters, the MiG-21 was first flown on February 14, 1955. This supersonic jet fighter was the first Soviet aircraft to successfully combine fighter and interceptor characteristics. Its delta wing design gave it the ability to climb quickly and its light loading further improved its performance, making it possible for a skilled pilot to successfully engage in dogfights with contemporary enemy fighters. Today, more than 50 years after its introduction, the MiG-21 still serves the air forces of many nations and has become the most-produced supersonic jet in history. Hobby Master's 1:72 scale MiG-21 is constructed in diecast metal with only the smallest amount of plastic used. The configurable cockpit canopy provides a clear view of the interior and pilot figure and the central air brake is deployable. A G-P9 cannon pod with hand-painted 23mm twin-barrel 23mm can be seen below the cockpit. The wing is crafted of solid metal, and structural details can be seen inside the wheel wells and inboard gear doors. Each wingtip has an integrated fence and air date sensors. Ordnance includes removable fuel tanks and K-13A air-to-air missiles.
