Did he say what year the "first Soviet MiG plane ever acquired by the US" was obtained?

early '68

Edit - I did find 3 Syrian pilots that defected to Israel in April 1968 with MIG21s.

It wasnt a story about the first MIG but the first MIG 21. Said an Iraqi pilot defected with it. I was going to check but never got around to it. The stories included tactics being used in Vietnam so I am guessing in the late 60s.

I think I remember seeing one out at a base to be named later around 78 or 79.

Just found this.

That late 60s time frame would make sense for MiG-21s, but the US had been "collecting" Soviet/Russian jets long before that.  The first was a MiG-9 in the late 40s, the first to get any press was the Mig-15 flown to South Korea by a NK defector shortly after the Korean War.  That aircraft is on display here in Dayton at the USAF Museum.

I hope George Knapp can have a guest or a story on how the cameras on the Military Aircraft operate. Just what are we seeing when we view the extraordinary videos that have accompanied these recent stories.
