Polish MiG-21 Highway Operations

Polish MiG-21 fighters landing on a road, from the movie "Na niebie i na ziemi" (1974)

I'm no aero engineer, but it looks like the MiG-21 had a wicked landing speed, perhaps due to the small delta wing configuration. They may also have been doing touch-and-gos. A couple of the pilots even grab a little oppo on the landings. This is from what is essentially a Polish Top Gun movie, though it predates that film by 10 years. The Aviationist has a good discussion about this film and the roads the Poles used for operations.
