SyAAF MiG-21bis Shot Down (2012-08-29) & (2012-09-04)

As the appetite of Free Syrian Army (FSyA) for bringing down aircraft is increasing day by day, another two SyAAF aircraft were shot down by Shuhada' Souria battalions in less than a week in Abu DhHour town adjacent to Abu DhHour AFB.
The first one was a MiG-21bis with serial 2271 (shown above), brought down while climbing after taking off (as reported by rebels) on 29th August 2012.

Another photo for the fin of the MiG-21bis. Note that in the video, rebels used to define it a 'MiG-23' as they considered Abu DhHour is famous with its MiG-23 squadron more than its MiG-21's. 

Here is the video.

The second MiG-21, is also a bis, was brought down by the same mentioned battalion in the same area on 4th September 2012.

This 2280 MiG-21bis was also was shot shortly after taking off. Both aircraft's crew were KIA.
