Tanzania loses MiG-21

A Chinese-built MiG-21 is reported

to have crashed during a training

exercise in south-west Tanzania recently.

The pilot was killed after the

aircraft is said to have entered a

steep dive. Tanzania's recently acquired

squadron of MiG-21s were

shown publicly for the first time in

July during a military parade to mark

the 20th anniversary of the founding

of the country's ruling Tanu party.
