    It is true. And I know, what an incredible opportunity!!!

    I just hope the guy is someone with whom one would wish fly in a MIG. but as I sit here and think about it, he has a MIG and he's alive. That says quite a bit right there.

    Maybe Tsu can fulfill two dreams at once and parachute from the MIG. :biggrin:

    Word of caution.

    I heard that there is a place in georgia where you can pay to fly in a T-34mentor and do simulated combat in the air. Well, one of the T-34's had a wing failure because they were putting the airplanes under high loads continuously.

    Although, MIGs are very good airplanes. Plus you have ejection seats :wink:. What kinda mig, 17?

    Very cool :cool:

    Actually, I did Air Combat in a Marcuzzi light attack aircraft. Tsu gave it to me as a surprise Christmas present. If you are a thrill seeker, do Air Combat no matter what it takes. I didn't stop smiling for weeks - literally!!! It was so intense that I was physically incapable of driving home afterwards.

    I don't know which mig he owns yet.

    No actually, I'm just saying. Don't go up in the air if the guy is some rich yahoo who likes to pull 12G stunts for fun on a regular basis. Old airplanes don't like to be mistreated.

    One time I went up with a guy in a cessna (probably from the 70's) and we were doing some hard turns on it. In hindsight, that was a stupid thing to do.

    Get on the mic and say, "were too close for missles, im switching to guns!"

    Then proceed to fire at pengwuinos house. I'll give you the lat and long so you can punch it into the INS computer. :devil:

    I'd be interested in what MiG you'll be in.

    I did an ACM day in AT-6's. It was fun.

    Allegedly this guy can go supersonic but that doesn't agree with the listed speed of 650 mph. Were any of the 15s supersonic? I am wondering if this is the right plane. The person who said that it's a 15 has never actually gone up, so maybe he's wrong about the model.
