Excellent shot of a rare bird. The slightly darker sky really helps her to stand out and the flames and heat haze in the exhaust are a bonus. I doubt MiG 17s looked this pretty in actual service!

Quite a capable aircraft for its day even if the Russians designed it, except it had a short flight duration due to available fuel load

Beautiful pic. Info on the Mig15's (leading to the MiG17) development: To Stalin's amazement, the British Labour government and its Minister of Trade, Sir Stafford Cripps, were perfectly willing to provide technical information and a license to manufacture the Rolls-Royce Nene. Sample engines were purchased and delivered with blueprints. Following evaluation and adaptation to Russian conditions, the windfall technology was tooled for mass-production as the Klimov RD-45 to be incorporated into the MiG-15.

Beautiful shot! Beautiful airplane! WOW!
Who would want a supercar when they could have this at a fraction of the cost. Maintenance with pliers and a screwdriver and lands on a dirt strip. What's not to like?
Pardon me. I forgot I'm talking to a bunch of aviation crazies who need no convincing...
