MiG-23 Canopy Woes

All of the tail connectors have been attached and the system holds nitrogen very well. The canopy system works as demonstrated here:

Although the front canopy locks are stuck in the open position and, worse, the rear ones are stuck in the closed position. We're evaluating multiple options before we try removing the Plexiglas to break in. :-(


  1. Got a connection backwards on the canopy opening control valve?

  2. Can the canopy be manually open?
