One thing I’ll tell you right away — it was one thing watching the show-stealing set put up by the MiG-35 at Yelahanka in February. It’s completely another being in the cockpit when all those things are happening. My flight will shortly be a special report on Headlines Today, and will post the schedule here as soon as I’m back in the country. As a parting note for today, one of the things to do before you die — the tail slide manoeuver in one of these babies.
Flight in the MiG-35!!!
Monday was a big day. I took a sortie in a MiG-35 fighter from Zhukovskiy air base outside Moscow a day before the MAKS 2007 air show began. Short of time, so this is just a note. I’ve received all your comments and suggestions for questions to ask the Russians while I’m here. Will do for sure. The photo shown here wasn’t taken by us here, but this aircraft (the 154) was the one I took my 33-minute sortie in with pilot Stanislav V. Gorbunov.
