Flying The Mig-29 – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Monday

John Sessions - Warbird Radio LIVE! - Monday

MONDAY – John Sessions from the Historic Flight Foundation joins us with an in-depth look at flying the Mig-29.  On January 23, 2011 the second privately owned Mig-29 took to the skies over Washington.  The “Fulcrum” is capable of Mach 2.2 and altitudes of nearly 60,000 feet.  While it’s a far cry from the other airplanes the Historic Flight Foundation operates it’s certainly worthy of preservation.  This particular Mig-29 was built in the Soviet Union sometime between 1985-1991.  After the collapse of the Soviet Union it served with the Ukrainian Air Force.

After many years in storage and restoration the Mig-29 is now undergoing flight test at Snohomish County Airport in Everett, Washington.  Hear it’s amazing story this Monday at 10am (EASTERN) on Warbird Radio LIVE!
