Everyone knows the MiG-28 has a problem with its inverted flight tanks. It won't do a negative G push over.

Hopefully sooner or later they'll do it right, at least this time there was no collision.

Indeed, Westie!

Having worked with a 'certain USAF organisation' some years ago, I'm pretty certain that I know what that '135 was doing there...

The PRC needs to consider the bigger picture concerning that part of the world - recent PRNK activities in particular - and how other nations might help their situation.

And that's all I have to say about that...

Before you start noodling up the PLAAF you had better have a look at their website.
