model i've seen plenty of pics of rc planes with stuff in the background that makes them look real. and the grass is iffy but like i've said i've seen pics where rc looked real. gear failed and the guy backed off put them flaps down and set her down real nice in the short grass near the end of the runway at the airport where the jet rally was taking place.

o and theres no thrust or the dust cloud would be a lot bigger

I'm not calling anybody a liar, I thought it was a model, Because, The brakes aren't deployed and the gear wasn't down, AND, why, if he was doing a loop, are the flaps down? Oh, and the antennas/sensors are on positions not seen on MiGs of that time, sure, I have seen the Red bull 17, It has considerable changes done to it, and they would probably do that to their 15, but, that is not a red bull 15. Perhaps you could give us some more information, maybe about the Number, or color, ect...any historical bacround on the aircraft could help convince me that it is a real aircraft.

i can help with ehy the breacks and the general things in a landing
there nod down because in a energency landing with no gear the book says to keep flaps and breaks to a low level so you dont end up stalling

... sorry i cant help with the other stuff you asked

i've seen old pics of 17s with the antennas/sensors right in those very spots. sometimes it just varied between factorys. thats been seen in everything from cars to planes for years and years and years

see look at this one

Can't believe this thread is still alive.

Here is a mig that is painted similar to the victim.

Is it common to re-number replacement Airshow birds the same?

About the dust trail, If it is a Real mig 15, why isn't a bigger plume, afterall, The MiG-15 Klimov engine gives it 5952 lb of thrust, It's not much by today's standards, but it would kick up some dust, The dust trail behind the image is just from the rear dragging, and it's not like the engines are shut off, or else it would have crashed.

Then It wouldn't have been able to recover and Crashed into the ground, which would result in a fire and explosion. It's a good point though
