    No, and they havn't flown in years.Back in '95 or '96 the MiG's were the subject of several regional newspaper articles when it was famously reported that mice had eaten through the wiring.At least one aircraft was shipped to Israel( IAI/ELBIT systems,I believe) to be upgraded to same 'Lancer' standard as Romanian Air Force MiG-21's but the Cambodian govt. couldn't make payment so it stayed in Israel.The Mi-26 heavylift helicopter was still at Pochentong airport/airbase(Phnom Penh) when I flew through there two years ago.It, together with at least one of the Mi-8's,though they fly in ROCAF livery, are reported to be owned by a wealthy Sino-Cambodian buisnessman who leases the helo's to the Cambodian govt. When there not flying troops/stores they're used for heli-logging and other commercial purposes.Great pics,thanks.

    When I visited Cambodia in 2002, the Royal CAF consisted of the one small helo pictured two post ago. Im sure they have a few more aircraft now. The Mig 21's you can see when you land at Pochentong Airport in Phnom Penh. In 2002, they did not fly, and I really doubt if they have them up and running now.
