The MiG-21 appeared in the Finnish sky in 1963 when Finland purchased 21 MiG-21F-13s for the Finnish Air Force from the Soviet Union. In those days MiG-21 was one of the best jet day fighters. When they became obsolete, Finland replaced them with 26 MiG-21BIS all-weather fighters during 1978–1986. Including the replacing aircraft and two-seaters, the Finnish Air Force had in all 54 MiG-21s. MiG-21 flew its last flight in the Finnish Air Force on 7th of March, 1998. After that it has been impossible to exceed Mach 2 within the Finnish Air Force. This book tells the story of MiG-21 in Finland from the 1960s.
