(ex CTF-701) Chinese built export version of the 2-seat trainer version of the MiG-17 (Chengdu JJ-5) in Sri Lankan service. Received in 1990, she was used for jet conversion prior to arrival of the Hongdu K-8 Karakorum in 2001. Stored in flying state at the SLAF Aircraft Preservation and Storage Unit since 2009. The large safety lettering for the fuselage gun was done after an accidental ground firing led to injuries to airmen. Note the new roundel and tail number system introduced by the SLAF recently.
