I have been made aware that plans are afoot by a owner to import a Mig-21 for adventure rides into Australia sometime soon, most likely in 2015. The last flying Aussie Mig-21 flew in the 1990s i recall but suffered some issues and was keep grounded and now on display a at a museum.

According to wikipedia (I know, it can't be trusted much!) There's one being restored in Perth

I have spoken to the owner today, he is willing to share more information on his interesting project when he is ready to do so. He is just sorting out some issues at present.

Good on him! A -21 would make for an incredible flight experience. I'll follow this with great interest!
