I had the privilege of going out today to shoot a MiG 17 from the local airfield.

Definitely had fun out there. Too bad we couldn't get that burner pass though :mad: Oh well there is always next time.

Where exactly did you meet it?

BTW, Mig is a misspelling. MiG is correct (Mikoyan and Gurevich). No offense - just my $.05.

These shots are really great! And condition of the jet is excellent, to say the the least.
