We had a MIg-29 at Mojave a few years a ago. It was a Ukrainian AF aircraft also.Part of the North American Tour Got some pictures of it in the air and on the ground.
As an aircraft inspector I was oarticularly interested in looking over the construction of the aircraft. Found bi-metallic corrosion around the fasteners as well as other anomalies. Soviet aircraft might go faster, highewr etc. but US workmanship is better
