The Wikipedia account of how Zuyev stole the Mig-29 and his firefight with the guard differ significantly from Zuyev's own version in his book "Fulcrum: A Top Gun Pilot's Escape from the Soviet Empire". Assuming that Zuyev told the story accurately in his own book, the information on this page seems inaccurate or suspect.
According to the intro, "Alexander Zuyev (1961 - June 10, 2001) was a captain of the former-Soviet Air Defense Force (VVS) who piloted his Mikoyan MiG-29 to Trabzon, Turkey on May 20, 1989." Which was it? VVS or PVO? At the time of his defection, PVO was still independent. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 03:17, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
