The MiG-17F is a Polish License built version of the MiG-17F produced in Poland by the WSK-Mielec factory and is an interceptor Lim-5P (equivalent to the Soviet produced MiG-17PF) produced in the mid-1950s.
Imported into Australia in 1998 the MiG-17F was repainted as Polish Air Force “402” in a silver finish with red trim and markings. She is in excellent condition, complete with her cockpit fit out and 2 X ground attack UB-16-57 multiple rocket pods.
Previously located at Caboolture Qld, the MiG-17F was generously donated by Jack McDonald to Hunter Fighter Collection Inc. It is on static display at the Hunter Warbirds Aviation Attraction at Scone NSW.
