MiG-17F
Unit: 20 AB, 18 Sqn, UARAF
Serial: 2335

El-Arish, late 1966 or early 1967. This MiG-17F '2335' might have been another example used by the display team of the Egyptian Air Force during the mid-1960s. The plane did not survive the war: it was hit and destroyed by Israeli Ouragans already during the first wave of the Operation 'Moked', on the morning of 5 June 1967. Note also the indigenously constructed rails for rockets caliber 76mm, mounted under the wing-tips of this aircraft. Many Egyptian MiG-17Fs were later also modified by addition of hardpoints attached directly to the fuselage below the wings.

MiG-17F
Unit: EAF
Serial: 2041 (?)

Immediately after the Six Day War the Egyptians started camouflaging their MiGs - a late measure, proposed several times already before the catastrophe of the 5 June 1967. In emergency, and lacking other suitable colours, the Egyptians used a stock from a car factory at Hulwan! This early camouflage pattern was later to become known - albeit in a modified form - as 'Nile Valley'. It consisted of Sand, Black, and Light Grey colours. Serials were still applied, albeit not as prominently as before, and unit insignia completely disappeared: after all, initially after the Six Day War all the surviving aircraft and pilots were concentrated within two 'Big Squadrons', and only slowly through 1968 were the old units re-established.

MiG-17F
Unit: unknown
Serial: 2801

Egypt, 1967: The MiG-17F shown on this artwork illustrates the look of most of Egyptian fighters before, during, and immediately after the Six Day War. Other than the usual identification stripes around the rear fuselage and the tips of the wings, as well as a small serial ('2801') not many other markings can be found.

MiG-17PF
Unit: 25 Sqn, UARAF
Serial: 2803

This aircraft was flown by Captain Moustafa Hafez (1941-2001), on the morning of 5th June 1967, when he scrambled from Kibrit AB, on the shores of Great Bitter Lake, to intercept attacking Israeli Super Mystere fighters. While attempting to land due to fuel shortage, Capt. Hafez observed four Israeli fighters in front of him and attacked. After making several circles, he confronted one of the Israelis head-on, when his MiG was hit in the right wing, and had the lower part of the rudder shot away. Unable to straighten out, Capt. Hafez first climbed, then turned back for a landing, using the aileron to roll out. The Israelis subsequently issued three claims for Egyptian MiG-17s shot down over Kibrit on this day, of which one is considered confirmed. But, as Capt. Hafez's MiG-17PF was the only from Kibrit that was hit on 5 June 1967, and he not only landed his MIG safely, but the plane was later also repaired, the Israeli accounts are obviously off the mark.

The MiG-17PF was an interceptor with two radar housings for RP-1 'Izumrud' radar system in the nose, and the large N-37 cannon replaced by the third NR-23 cannon, mounted in a smaller fairing on the starboard side of front fuselage. The first examples were delivered to Egypt in 1958. By the time of the 1967 War with Israel, aircraft of the Egyptian Air Force tended to have rather gaudy markings, including unit insignia usually applied on front fuselage, and identification bands on rear fuselage and wings. This MiG-17PF spots the insignia of No.25 Squadron, then based in Kibrit. This was a night-interceptor unit, and its crest was showing a 'bat-winged-crow', standing on a globe, in black, on the background of bare metal.
