Pretty nice for a ‘Make Offer’ MiG
Raptor Aviation has a Polish-made Lim-5, which was a licensed variant of the Soviet Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17 attack aircraft designed to use an afterburner, up for grabs in a “Make Offer” sale. Located in the U.S., the Warsaw Pact combat aircraft was made in 1960 but has had the same owner in the West for the past 23 years and has been refurbished.
The Polish-produced fighter, NATO designation Fresco-D, is kinda rare as the line just numbered about 500~ out of a total MiG-17 production worldwide of over 10,000.
This particular specimen was active in the Polish Air Force until 1966 when it was pulled and transferred to a mechanic training school where it sat until 1993 and was subsequently sold to a collector in the West– and it is now up for grabs.
