The Shenyang J-5 (Chinese: ?-5) (NATO reporting name Fresco is a Chinese-built single-seat jet interceptor and fighter aircraft derived from the Soviet Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17. The J-5 was exported as the F-5 and was originally designated Dongfeng-101 (East Wind-101) and also Type 56 before being designated J-5 in 1964. The Soviet built Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17 (Fresco) was initially called the MiG-15bis+45° and completed its maiden flight on January 13, 1950 and entered service in 1952. There were five variants of the MiG-17 with the MiG-17F (Fresco C) becoming the main variant. The new Klimov VK-1F engine was the first Soviet built engine with an afterburner and variable nozzle. The installation of this new engine gave the MiG-17F double the rate of climb of previous variants and greatly improved vertical maneuvers. This aircraft lacked radar and was purely a day-time fighter. Primary Role: Fighter Aircraft.

In 1955 Poland purchased a license to produce the MiG-17 aircraft to be manufactured by WSK-Mielec (Wytwórnia Sprz?tu Komunikacyjnego) and WSK "PZL-Mielec" a Polish aerospace manufacturer, based in Mielec. The Polish aircraft was named Lim-5 and the first aircraft was completed on November 28, 1956 with a total number of 477 Lim-5s being produced by 1960. On July 12, 1993 the oldest Lim-5 1717 of the 45th Experimental Aviation Squadron completed a commemorative last flight of the Lim-5 wearing a special paint scheme designed by artist, renowned aviation historian and publisher Robert 'Gretza' Gretzyngier.
