Looks like the Mig was taken illegally....

The question now is whether it will be returned.

Its never coming back..the fact remains that Angola could have used an existing Mig for the memorial.It's all about Zuma being a show off impressing other ex communistic,ANC helping nations.With our heritage and tax monies.

Airfire I fear you are correct.

At the very least it has been confirmed that the removal was unauthorised and illegal.

Not to mention the secrecy as well.

If museums are being raided in such a cunning way, one can only imagine what else is actually going on.
