Speaking of MiGs, I once got to see a MiG-15 at an airshow here in upstate NY. They were touting it as the only Western-owned MiG-15. Was nice to see it fly.[/QUOTE]Roo St. Gallus;678841 wrote:I know the feeling.
If it were the Germans, they wouldn't be flying Mirage 2K. Could it have been a Eurofighter Typhoon?...It's a delta, but with canard. I understand about the 'wide open spaces', but there are places like Mach Loop in Wales, too. Given the number of military alliances the US has any more, we're starting to see sophisticated Sukhoi and MiG aircraft doing exercises in the US. It must make the Red Flag exercises real eye-openers.
If there's only one, then I've seen it too.
I think in terms of unique aircraft I've seen at airshows, the Bleriot XI was one of the coolest. I doubt there are more than just the one, and seeing it up close, it's one of the few aircraft you couldn't get me to fly in.....
