If so, open house.

Not possibly, but definitely (in this case the D.376). Well done

Night night

Graeme has declared Open House.

Not a MiG Martin...and not a project.

So built? Flown? I guess it could be a wacky Iranian machine or something?

Edit: surely those ventral fins fold on the ground?

Built and flown but not Iranian.

No, they are reported as fixed. Certainly in both ground and air photo's the fins are in that position.
