What was the disposition of the 21 MIG 29's that the United States acquired from Moldova back in 1997? Are they being clandestinely used (such as for evaluations),or did they sell them to a friendly nation that had the 29's in the arsenal?

Thanks for the info LY744...I was thinking possibly they could of been used in the "aggressor" training,but I never heard anything following '97.... Not that it would ever happen, but it would be rather interesting to see a few of them in front line service!

Can I say no to MD88captain? Why yes I can. The aircraft are in storage in a location that, for some reason, is classified. And no, it is not Davis-Monthan or Nellis. Do I know? Yes. Can I tell you? Sorry, no.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.

There is one MiG-29 that is displayed out doors at the Patterson portion of Wright-Patterson AFB. When I saw this airplane (a couple of years ago), it was outside the Air Force Museum restoration shops without any engines. I was told the engines were being run at the engine test facility at Tullahoma, Alabama.
