A Moldovan MiG-29-13
If my (admittedly) shabby pictures of Linden Hill's MiG-29-13 decals earlier this week weren't enough to spark an interest in building Great Wall's MiG-29, Guy Holroyd graciously sent me this photograph of one of the subjects on that sheet, a MiG-29-13 of the Moldovan Air Force. The photo was taken at Marculesti AB in the early 2000s.
Guy said the tires "wouldn't pass a NY-DMV inspection." Given the poor condition of the aircraft serving the nations of these former Soviet Bloc nations, I often think their pilots have all the moxy of pilots in World War Two!
