    That's intersting the way the YAK-18 is sitting on it's nose. I notice in the background is a P-35, so that had to be taken in the US?!?

    I Got a Mig for ya!

    I actually helped assemble this ex Polish AF Mig-15 UTI back around 1995/ 96. It is owned by a building contractor named Tom Brown and is maintained and flown by my friend Dean Soast. I've gotten to fly with Dean on several occasions and even did a 50th Anniversary Korean War Fly-by in a T-33 with this Mig and an F-86 in formation. The few times I didn't have a camera! :cry:

    This is at Mojave Airport, Mojave Ca.

    This mig actually started out life as a single seat aircraft, It went through a depot in Poland and was converted into a trainier and was used as a forward air control aircraft (we had the information translated from the aircraft records). It was taken out of service in the late 1980s and placed in storage. When we were putting it back together (it was in a box) you could see where the depot installed the "Turtle Back" for the rear cockpit. The quality of the installation was poor, many clenched rivets and improper rivet spacing

    When they imported the first Mig 15 into the UK they found that it still had its guns. Caused a bit of a stir.

    Yes it would! In the US when you import an ex-military aircraft the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) gets involved in the process and inspects the aircraft upon it's arrival. If the guns aren't de-militarized, they impound the aircraft and it could take years to get It "out of jail." The most common practice is to drill big holes through the breech and chamber of the gun and even pour cement into the breech.

    You'll have to ask Anton Mikoyan - actually the fighter design bureaus did the same, bombers and transports were even
