Two MiG-29s and an IL-76 came to the United States in what was called the "Soviet MiG-29 Friendship Tour '91". The 1991 Cleveland National Air Show was the first stop on this tour, which featured a full demonstration of the MiG-29 Fulcrum. These pictures were taken on Saturday (31 August), the first day of the show.
