    Interesting video! Certainly depressing to see them like that. A lot of money to be had if someone scavenges them though...

    You should see some of the convoys of trucks elsewhere on the site - just left in woods (100's of them). They made so much stuff in the Cold war!

    Assuming a red star below the port side of the windscreen indicates a kill, one of those MiG-31s had two kills.

    There's always been rumours some of the Syrian, Egyptian, etc. that fought in the middle east battles against Israel actually had Russian pilots.
    If those pilots got any victories, they'd mark their later aircraft with them too.
