The Bulgarian MiG-29 fighter jets will be overhauled in Poland again, as announced after a meeting between the interim military minister Dimitar Stoyanov and representatives of the Polish embassy. 

The agreement is for the exchange and repair of six engines "at the earliest opportunity". According to the minister, it is extremely important that Bulgaria will be able to use the MiG-29r fighter jets as they will be the only aircraft Bulgarian military pilots will fly until the new F-16s are delivered. However, the delivery of the US planes will be delayed.
