he Mig-l9 came from the successful design bureau of Artem Mikoyan and Mikhail Gurevich. The dramatic 55 degree sweep and twin engines gave this aircraft excellent performance and speed. It was comparable to the U.S. F-100 Super Sabre. The Mig-19 was also licensed for production in China and it equipped most Soviet Eastern Bloc countries throughout the 1960’s. China even abandoned its newer Mig-21’s and returned to producing Mig-l9’s.

The Mig-19 shown above, with 0409 painted on its side fuselage, was donated in October, 2001, from Lillie Hornak, Palm Springs, CA. It once flew with the Czechoslovakian Air Force.
