A unique formation - all MiG-21 variants in IAF service. Leading the formation is CU2796, a MiG-21 Bison. Behind him is C2218, a MiG-21bis, and below is C1576, a MiG-21MF. The last frame is a MiG-21UM. Taken during the opening flypast of Exercise Iron Fist 2013 at the Pokhran Range.

You missed one - C1151 (top left) is a MiG-21PF. Check the spine radio communication antenna, centerline Pitot tube, narrow spine, no GSh-23 cannon, forward opening canopy.
Also, I do see two 21MFs (inner left and right wingmen) but no 21bis.

Alex, C1151 is a MiG-21FL (very similar to PF). IAF has never operated the -21PF. The a/c between the C1151 and the Bison in lead is a -21bis, the dorsal spine is longer than that of C1576, which is a -21MF.

I really amazed to see this MiG-21FL is still airworthy in this photo. This aircraft type is really classic , its one piece canopy is really interesting too. All of these MiG-21 versions are classic and make this photo eye-catchable. Thank you Angad (Babak T)
