MIG farewell tour

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- This MiG-29 Fulcrum flown by Lt. Col. Tom Hahn, squadron commander of Germany's Fighter Wing 73 "Steinhoff," flies over the Gulf of Mexico during a training exercise. The German MiGs are being hosted by the 53rd Wing during various training missions. Unlike previous visits to the U.S. for training, this deployment provides German pilots the opportunity to fly live-fire missions against both full-scale QF-4 drones and sub-scale drones. This MiG boasts a particularly colorful paint scheme for their "Farewell USA" tour. The Germans are transitioning to the new Eurofighter and this will be the last trip for the MiGs to the U.S. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Michael Ammons)
