Mig-15_real or model?

Dusted this one off from my archives (having flown Mig-15s early in my USAF career, I have a continuing interest ... which my wife calls an affliction).)

What do you think: real? or model?

Model

I go with model. If that was real someone would be in a lot of trouble. My guess is someone had a gear failure and was putting it down nicely

Exclamation 2 vs 2

2 for model and 2 for real ... I'll wait for a few more inputs and let you know tomorrow. At least half of those already voting will be right.

Umm, I'm new here, and maybe a little late on this thread, but I think that's a Mig-17. 3 wing fences on each wing instead of 2? Incredible pic. Love the story that goes with it. I wonder what the 'tail strike during flight' inspection requires?

A lot of us added the third fence to the 15s once the 17 proved the merit outweighed the penalties. Here's a really recent -15 that flew at Reno this year. Count the fences.

That's just weird seeing a MiG with Red Bull on it.

I hate to persist, seeing as you're obviously an expert, but that Red Bull plane is a Mig-17 as well. That's what Red Bull flies. (Seen it perform at Miramar.) Also, there's alot more than just the 3rd fence on the wing indicating it's a -17: the wing tip shapes, and the probes at the leading edge of both wing tips, for example. I've never seen or heard of anyone adding a 3rd fence to a -15. Perhaps the -17 used it due to the higher wing sweep it has?
