For years, the Soviet MiG-17 F fuselage number 0872, one of two machines of this version delivered to the Czechoslovak Republic as a sample piece for unrealized license production, has been exhibited in the external exposition of the aviation museum. The exhibited front-line fighter aircraft completed its first flight on October 12, 1955. From November 25, 1955 to February 19, 1957, it was the personal aircraft of the then commander of the Czechoslovak Air Force, Lieutenant General Josef Vosahlo. From January 14, 1958 he served with VU6354 Brno, then from September 29, 1958 with VU8257 in Brno and finally from October 11, 1961 with VU7349 in Piestany. The aircraft flew for a total of 441 hours and 29 minutes during 756 starts. In December 1966, it was handed over to the upcoming Aviation Museum.
