The similar experience in Capetown was also very pricey, and gave me pause up to the day I left. But hell, the kids are only gonna blow whatever ya leave em.

This (http://tilenius.homestead.com/russia13.html) website says that Alexandre Beschastnov, the pilot they list on the PILOT link is dead.
In a crash.
A Mig?

The next photo but one, also shows a "Mig 25" taking off.

Looks a bit like a Mig 29 to me though.:ugh:

I love this little line on the price list..........

All prices are subject to change with no warning


(Overheard at 70,000 feet)

"Well mate, I did say it was $11,000 but it's now $20,000. I'm fairly sure only one of us can land this thing and I know your parachute doesn't work. Your call!"

Make sure your mate 'phones around, there are umpteen firms that compete for business.

I seem to remember finding one offering Fishbed flights for around a couple of thousand dollars, which strikes me as good value if you want your internal organs to become external.

You can get a MIG-25 trip for 7,949.00. But that does include two nights in a luxury hotel in Moscow, VIP customs and immigration clearance, a custom made leather flight jacket, flight certificate, and a photo with the jet and pilot on the runway. :O

I want one of those (http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/8MIGFL_ADVE.htm)

Orac, I never knew a MIG-25 could reach 82,000 feet!!

1st Dec 2004, 07:48
ORAC Knowing "Luxury" hotels in Moscow you'll probably get something else thrown in as well.:E

1st Dec 2004, 08:18
Does that make it an experience that totally blows you away? :E

ps, EAL401,

I never knew a Lightning could reach 78K either, till I saw it with my own eyes on a HF200. Mind you, he did admit later it went very quiet for a while....

I see we come from the same place.

surely not

Mmmm- like the look of the Mig21 (single seat?). I think the prices may have been comparable at Thunder City Cape Town, but now the Rand seems to have hardened a lot, maybe not so good now. They have a Hunter, Buccaneer and Lightning available there, and a week in the Cape sampling the best wines in the world and eating cheaply at the best restaurants in the world, swimming at the best beaches and basking in the sun somehow beats cabbage soup in Moscow (forget the leather jacket!)

Pilot magazine did an excellent article a few years ago about a Mig flight that went to a rediculous height. Anyone have any details.

You can buy a MIG21 for the price of one of they flights Mr Fantastic, alus liked the 21, neat looking little machine.

Was once foolishly tempted to try this


Was a wee bit cheaper though!

Does the 'Jet Warbird Golf Shirt' come with its original filling?

Actully guys I looked into this - a web search a few months ago came up with some Moscow (i.e. non US) providers that offered similar flights for something like 1/4 of the price. Seriously.

My feeling is some of these websites are for cash laden yanks with more sense than money offered by US based companies with just a little excessive advertising and hefty profits.

Do a little investigation and I'm sure you'll come away with a hell of a better deal.

Just hate to see anybody ripped off :)

The Mig rides at Moscow Zhukovsky are provided by a Govt. Research Agency which is allocated the aircraft by the military (one of the many, which one I cant recall) and then I have seen them sold on by many vendors all at some degree of mark up that's for sure

Phone a friend (in Russia) provides 'Gromov Flight Research Institute'

Drapes I'd settle for a cold beer and a DVD rental.
