With the end of the Soviet Union in 1991 came the reunification of East and West Germany. With that reunification also came the consolidation of the armed forces which was a bit of a culture shock since these forces had been ready to fight one another if needed. The Luftwaffe evaluated the aircraft operated by the former EGAF and decided whether to transition these units to different aircraft types, disband the units altogether, or keep them operational with the necessary upgrades to operate safely within NATO airspace.

One such unit was JG 73 operating the MiG-29 (9-12) Fulcrum A. In 1993, JG 73 was relocated to a new airfield complex at Laage where they continued flight operations with the MiG-29. In 2000, JG 73 deployed with Phantoms of JG 51 to participate in Red Flag 00-01 at Nellis AFB. In 2003, JG 73 returned stateside with their MiG-29s to Eglin AFB where they conducted joint exercises and even used the Eglin overwater range to launch a missile or two. The following year, JG 73 transitioned from the MiG-29 to the Eurofighter Typhoon.
