Formidable Foe - MiG 21 Original Painting
Mig-21 Original Oil on Canvas Painting by Aviation Artist Roger Murray
From its first flight on 16 June 1956, the MiG 21 has been constantly updated, reconfigured and adapted to fit as many roles as possible while maintaining parity and sometimes superiority over the aircraft of the west. With western designers focussing on engine power, the MiG 21 is very much a product of Soviet experience in the Korean War where agility still proved its worth. Not only was the aircraft exported to a great number of countries, it has also been built in several. This is Czech two-seat trainer version, a small number being made in Czechoslovakia in the 1960s
This is the original painting from which our print is taken. The canvas size is 18" x 14" with an overall size of 22" x 18"
