    ''In order to fly the legendary MiG-3, Siberian engineers did a tremendous job.

    ''At the controls exactly the same fighter winter of 1941, Lieutenant Pashkov knocked fascist bombers on the approaches to Moscow. Then the four thousand Henkel flew to the city a little more than a hundred. In response, German fighters began to hunt for MiGami. In one of these battles Ivan Pashkova plane was shot down, and the pilot barely had time to jump with a parachute from a burning car.

    Airplane Pashkova exploded in the air. But the wreckage of this moment more than half a century had lain in a swamp near Tver. They found the search engines. The plane crashed after the pilot Yuri Alekseev led to a fire two Messerschmitt and rescued the detachment commander. Survivor fuselage fighter was taken to Novosibirsk. Here the car was collected literally a cog, restored the drawings, studied pictures of military chronicles and old photographs.

    Engineers actually repeated the way the designers of the first high-altitude interceptor, the Mikoyan and Gurevich. Collected aircraft decided to put on the wing.

    Recycled months experienced fighter on the ground. Checked every detail, tested the operation of all systems. And now the legendary MiG-3 is ready to rise again in the sky.

    Even in 20-degree cold cockpit open. It flew during the war. Cover glass bell prevented follow the enemy, it often gets jammed and the pilot was unable to leave the falling plane. To avoid frost-bitten face, experienced pilots were treated his goose fat.

    During these tests the pilot repeat the stunt, which at the same plane carried the famous ACC Alexander Pokryshkin. Then no one can call it a fighter only a museum piece.

    Boris Ossetia, the president of the Federation aviarestavratorov Russia: "This is the restored history, this link between generations. Remember the song" Moment between past and future? "And just this machine combines the moment between past and future - MiG third.

    Restoration of the legendary MiG - only the beginning of a great work of engineers. Enthusiasts have already restored the I-16 fighters, ground attack on the stocks IL-2. They dream of a national collection of flying aircraft and see how these war machines will open the Victory Parade in the sky over Red Square.''

    Cool link, v2. Thanks for posting this. I've got a little over a foot of snow here at my house and the temperature is right at freezing but man it looks so very cold where this footage was shot.

    I've always like the looks of the Mig 3. Wonder what the original engine sounded like.
