    Not how true maybe someone can shed some light on it. But impressive if true.

    How did the SU-9 differ from the SU-7 and SU-20?

    Completely unrelated designs. The Su-7 was an attack plane with swept wings, which was later developed into the Su-17/Su-20/Su-22 family with variable geometry. The Su-9 was an interceptor with delta wings, which was later developed into the Su-11 and finally the much bigger Su-15.

    So the same type the US would gain access anyway via Germany in the same year.
    No big loss for Russia. But yeah, such moves irrespective of how one can hate communism, are d!ck moves.

    I think he got offered some good cash for this.

    The MiG-29A (9.12, bort 44 blue -  c/n 2960516503) was returned to the Soviet Union only a day later.  The MiG-29 took off at 4.30 p.m. from Trabzon airport on the Black Sea, and was escorted by Turkish air force jets to Soviet air space.
