Mig-29UB Flyby by shelbs2 Mig-29UB Flyby by shelbs2
Mikoyan Mig-29UB making a pass after one of its test flights. This time they did a full burner takeoff. He climbed at full burner and two minutes later, we heard "This is 29UB, leveling at 36000"

also, sorry, but this aircraft has already been bought. but theres still two more

I REALLY hope so. John Sessions said he wanted one too (in joking around with him he also says he wants an F-14 XD). but then again, theres going to be two more Mig-29UBs imported and sold along with this one. hopefully one of em stays here ^^

yeah but doesnt sound like it'll be there permanently though...
it could go anywhere (seeing as he has stuff in colorado, arizona (where the 190 currently is), or somewhere in eastern washington). but I hope it stays here!

I live very close (around 10 miles) away from Radlett where the Hampden was built and made it's first flight. They built the Halifax there too. I've only ever seen wrecks of Hampdens though so I look forward to the photographs.
