  Corgi Aviation Archive US37505: Mikoyan MiG-29 Fulcrum-C in the superb livery of the Ukrainian Falcons, RAF Fairford Royal International Air Tattoo in 1997. Limited edition of only 1,000 models. Length 9.25 inches Wingspan 6.25 inches

The only non-Russian display team to be equipped with MiG-29s, the Ukrainian Falcons were established in early 1997 with seven Fulcrum Cs and two Fulcrum Bs. The team made its public debut on May 9th 1997 in Kiev during that year's VE-Day celebrations. The Falcons were the stars of the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford two months later, and they contined to perform at various events in Europe until July 2002. On the 27th of that month, an Su-27UB crashed into the crowd while performing arobatics at Sknilov Air Base, killing 83 spectators. In the wake of this tragedy the Ukranian Ministry of Defence banned military display flying altogether.

Designed to help the Soviet Union attain air superiority, the MiG-29 fighter was first flown on October 6th, 1977. The MiG-29, known as the "Fulcrum," has a high-mounted bubble canopy and twin jet engines with diagonal-shaped air intakes and large exhausts. Its tapered, swept-back wings and boom-mounted tail fins give it its classic look. Armed with medium and short-range missiles and unguided weapons for ground and sea-surface targets, the MiG-29's sight is a helmet-mounted system—the pilot chooses his targets by looking at them. Even today the Fulcrum remains a potent adversary, and will remain in service for at least another decade.
