VPAF and the MiG-17

On February 3 1964, Lt. Gen. Hoang Van Thai (North Vietnam’s Deputy Defence Minister) ordered the creation of the 921th Fighter Regiment «Sao Dao» («Red Star») and put it under the command of Lt. Col. 
Dao Dinh Luyen. 
That was the beginning of the MiG-17’s career in VPAF.  921th Regiment "Sao Do" began the war operating the MiG-17 Fresco A, a original batch of 20 jets delivered in 1964 from Soviet Union.  After training in China this first group of pilots and jets were recalled in Vietnam and began operations on Apr 3, 1965.
