    Wut? US intelligence had access to the Mig-29 in the 80s. By the early 90s is was flying at air shows in the USA. I remember it was $10K for a ride at Alliance Air Show in early 1990s. I remember Ross Perot Jr ponied up to fly it.

    That was a great read and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for posting the link. Quite a career. The pic of him having a class of champagne with the German pilot of his first MIG-29 solo flight was pretty cool.
