They are different.

The nose cone is different, more like a Sea Harrier nose cone, (longer).

Apart from that it's the same aircraft.

Altough the same aircraft can be different, different aircraft can't be the same :S

So it seems like we won't be getting a Mig-29 or SU-22 from Poland as I have heard that the Migs are still grounded and the SU-22s are now grounded too :'(

Pity as they would have made an already looking great show even better...I think the days of the Migs are getting behind us now, just hope the Romanians turn up with the Mig-21 as it really could be the last chance we see a flying Mig on these shores.

I think there is no hope now. They are even cancelled for polish airshows now

I think the Polish Navy said they wanted to send a M28.

Finally
MiG-21 LanceR and C-27J Spartan Confirm!

A Romanian Air Force MiG-21 LanceR will appear in the Air Tattoo flying display this summer, alongside a C-27J Spartan in the static display! Last seen displaying at RAF Cottesmore at the 2001 Air Tattoo and on static display in 2005, the MiG 21 will make the journey to the UK to join NATO 70th celebrations.

This is yet another rare fast jet addition, making the Air Tattoo flying display one of the most diverse in the world. Other confirmed aircraft include the Ukrainian Su-27, Spanish Navy Harrier and USAF F-16 Viper Demo Team.

It is an excellent update. Are they likely to bring a spare?
