While most of the aircraft in the Hill Aerospace Museum are from the U.S. Air Force, or at least the U.S. military, that's not true in every case.
This is a 1950s-era Soviet MiG-21F, which had a crew of one, and could range as far as 1,038 miles with one NE-30 30mm cannon and two K-13A air-to-air missiles.
The plane has a wingspan of 23 feet 6 inches, is 43 feet 2 inches long and 13 feet 2 inches high. It had a maximum weight of 19,080 pounds, and could reach a maximum speed of Mach 2.05.
