The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch
Planes and Choppers
Mig-15 1120 at Cosford
Taken 12/9/2013 at RAF Cosford Museum
There is little more to add except that the Mig-15 gave the US pilots a bit of a fright when they encountered it over Korea.
It had a better rate of climb, better ceiling and better high-altitude radius of turn than any Allied jet aircraft at the time.
