Hello guys! in case u haven't noticed thats the FUASH(Albanian Military Air Force) insignia on my avatar, the old one. yes im an albanian, and i saw the top gear episode, quite fun i have to say. i have wanted to see these aircrafts for quite some time. actually a few months ago there was this expo of the Army's arsenal. They brought a MIG-19(Shenyang J-6), a MIG-21(Chengdu J-7), and surprisingly a Yak-18(Nanchang Cj-6). i will upload pictures later. there are plenty of migs around the Albanian military bases and none of them flies(the official note was "NATO doesnt want them"). the last one took off in 2005 and crashed without even gaining altitude enough for the pilot to eject and the pilot, a colonel was killed. ever since the fighters have all been shut down. now they are locked in air bases such as Ku├žova, in Berat, the one you saw in Top Gear. its getting always more difficult to get to see them since.
