Me too, but she gets to go first. [just to be sure it's safe :biggrin:]

Details to be provided as soon as we know how it checks out.

..and now I'm supposed to sleep?

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:

Edit: Here's the article http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/newsitems/1999/990603t34.html

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.

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.

Supersonic :rofl: no way. That thing would go subsonic at ~550mph and would be pushing it on such an old airplane.

If that's the airplane, then make sure you get a demonstration of this

Rate of climb: 50 m/s (9,840 ft/min)
That is like going to shoot you up 10k feet in a little over 1 min, that's amazing :biggrin:

The one guy who went up said that it is supersonic, so maybe its not a 15. The person who said that it's a 15 has never gone up. Of course I forgot the ask the person who would know.
