Flying The Mig-29 – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Monday
MONDAYÂ – John Sessions from the Historic Flight FoundationÂ joins us with an in-depth look at flying the Mig-29.Â On January 23, 2011 the second privately owned Mig-29 took to the skies over Washington.Â The “Fulcrum” is capable of Mach 2.2 and altitudes of nearly 60,000 feet.Â While it’s a far cry from the other airplanes the Historic Flight Foundation operates it’s certainly worthy of preservation.Â This particular Mig-29 was built in the Soviet Union sometime between 1985-1991.Â After the collapse of the Soviet Union it served with the Ukrainian Air Force.
After many years in storage and restorationÂ the Mig-29 is now undergoing flight test at Snohomish County Airport in Everett, Washington.Â Hear it’s amazing story this Monday at 10am (EASTERN) on Warbird Radio LIVE!
