Giorgio took these pictures in 1997 on Tirana/Rinas airfield, Albania.

There is a MiG-15 UTI (a 2 seat trainer) and the

MiG-17 of the Albanian Air Force

"The MiG-17 was in excellent condition: she was located together with a great number of similar a/c and mig 15 at Kucove Airfield, Albania. The guns were greased even though last flight reported in the flight log was in 1994 (this was in 1997)."
