Syria I think.

ok guys,the year was 1990,i was serving in the israeli air force at that time at a base somewhere in central of israel,one day we have been informed that a syrian pilot has detected with his jet fighter and landed at our base.it didnt took long time and i was already near the plane.

but thats nothing to the story of the detection.

the pilot took off to a very routine training flight when suddenly he broke formation and flew directly towards israel and it didnt took long time before he penetrated israel air space,they say that he flew so low that the treetops were above his jet because he was afraid that he will be shot down by israeli air force.

it didnt took so long before a couple of f-15s' intercepted his plane and instruct him to land in a central air base in israel.

obvious he got political asylum and the plane obviously was tested by israeli test pilots.

today the plane is located at the iaf museum at hazor near beer sheva.

 

p.s there are also other interesting planes like the mig-21,hunter and even a gazelle chopper.
