Flying the MiG-21 Fishbed & MiG 23 Flogger with JB Brown Test Pilot

Interesting lecture with a few bits of video / slides by a test pilot.
You'll learn why there is a vertical white line down the main instrument panel and why you will need a hosepipe after your Mig23 has landed.

Interesting lecture! Some good insights into Russian design philosophies there.

JB flew the MiGs as part of a unclassified programme in recent times.

CONTSTANT PEG was a classified programme that ran from 1977-1988. JB was not part of that programme.

Yes, I found it very interesting and enjoyed his delivery and sense of humour. Looking him up was also interesting - very full career!
