MiG Videos, mud run

Our first day out with the Cold War Air Museum, MiG-23, was exciting.

Both for what we expected to go right, like starting the APU and the Engine and testing the hydraulics (wings, controls, etc.) as well as what we didn't expect, like running off the taxiway into the mud.

We are happy to report that there was no damage to the aircraft (or anyone or anything else) and as reported in the previous blog, we had the aircraft out of the mud in relatively short order.

When it comes to building an aircraft and landing gear with the expectation that sooner or later it is going to get stuck in the mud, there are probably no better qualified and experienced design bureaus around!
