    Cool Vid!

    In June 2000 I got to participte in a flight commerating the start of the Korean War. I was in the back of a T-33. We had a MiG-15UTI and an F-86 in the flight. It was a last minute call so I didn't have a camera with me! :(

    Nice. I've seen them individually, but never together.

    Too bad. That must have been a thrill. I know I was thrilled just to see these two fly at Chino and to see them fly together was too much.

    Al Hansen, the guy who was flying the F-86 that day once owned a MiG-15 and F-86. The MiG that flew with us that day was based out of Mojave as well. 2 of my favorite aircraft.
