Blue Sky

By geoffash26  
After the weather we've had it was good to see they got the forecast wrong and we had a few blue spells at FairfordGrin

The Mikoyan MiG-29 Fulcrum is a legend among modern-day combat jets, combining supreme power and agility with remarkable versatility.

Developed in the mid-1970s, in response to a rapid stream of highly-capable new fighters emerging from the United States, the MiG-29 made its first flight in 1977 and joined the then Soviet Air Force six years later. It's since been acquired by many other nations, several of them in Eastern Europe including Poland.

The MiG-29 can fly at approximately Mach 2.25, or almost 1,500 miles per hour, and it can operate at an altitude of over 59,000 feet. Seven hardpoints allow it to be armed with air-to-air missiles and other weapons while, including export variants, the MiG-29 has been modified many times to create over 15 upgraded versions.
