MiG Graveyard #17 Late-Night Recon Mission

More than 35 fighter aircrafts we were counting on a field in rural Hungary. Nearly all of them were MiG-21 jets. A few of them were even in a converted version with two seats which were used for training. On top of that, there were also some Suchoi Su-22 fighter bombers. All of them were discarded, dumped and made unable to fly.


With the fall of communism, the era of those legendary warplanes was over. In the past, we have already heard of several other dumped MiGs which gained a lot of attention in the urbex community. But mostly, those are only single jets. Here we had the chance to see more than 30 of them at the same time. That's why this was one of the locations we were looking forward the most during our Hungary road trip.
