The Gunslinger Returns

Recommended Posts

In June of 1963 at The Beginning of The Cold War, A USSR Mig-21 Pilot  defected to Alaska,The Aircraft was then secretly  taken to Area 51 Nevada where it was  Dismantled,Studied and  put back together for tests to see it's strong points and weaknesses. 

It sat dormant in a Hanger until a Soviet Test Pilot familiar with "The Fishbed" talked to some Dept. of Defense Engineers and Flight Enthusiasts to get it back in the air,After a few years of buying parts from around the world,Restoring it's Flight Controls it has once again after a 55 year hiatus  reached into The Great Blue Yonder .

You stunning shots in DCS never cease to amaze me.....

I hope to one day hop into the several jets I own in the sim and get busy defending my sim world from the evil do-badders! 😄

What I would do get this richly-textured (and, of course, shining so beautifully in your shots here) MIG-21 in the SIM, just to be able to fly a Milk-Run type flight...🙂...not good at the other stuff as you are...[Oh well, I know, the only answer is, Go to DCS!]...

Patrick: Which version/language cockpit/controls do you use - authentic Russian maybe? I understand there are multiple choices in this (DCS) SIM. Right? Thanks.

I have rarely seen such wonderful pictures from a flight simulator.

With one of the most elegant fighters of the cold war.

Makes perfect sense...it must be a very steep learning curve, indeed! And, with such complex and accurate system fidelity, just to be able to take it to the sky must feel like an achievement itself. Truly an amazing study SIM...
