Thought you may like to see these pictures, which I took in 2003. It was then the entrance to Shaibah (Shitibah) Airfield in Iraq. And this MIG was right at the front.
The airfield was completely ruined and in a terrible mess when we got there. It used to be an RAF airfield in the 20's until they pulled out. The tower picture (the tidy one) was taken in 1923, the other in 2003, quite a difference I think you'll agree
