Many former Warsaw Pact combat aircraft especially earlier generation aircraft are now resting in storage salvage depots and are an unwanted heritage of the Communist era. These two early MiG-21 F-13 Fishbed Cs, along with the nearby MiG-15 rear fuselage once proudly flew with the Hungarian Air Force, before cutbacks in the force made them un-necessary.Similar storage/salvage depots have been seen in other Eastern Bloc countries. In most cases, needed or useful parts are stripped from the aircraft then they are held awaiting the final decision to scrap them.
