    ...and a MiG 17 for comparison. This example is Polish built and painted in the colours of the North Vietnamese Air Force.

    The paint scheme has been made by a hippie? Or do they smoke fags in the NVA ?

    I guess it makes a difference which air force it is flown by, but from what I've read it was a very basic plane, not as sophisticated as the F-86

    Both aircraft were very basic, no advanced electronics or 'fly by wire' controls-in some respects such as the 6 x .50 cal MG armament the F86 lagged behind Soviet practice of having a heavy cannon armament.

    You could always watch Topgear in Albania.
    I prefer the Sabre.

    The Klimov RD 45 used in the Mig15 is actually a copy of the Rolls Royce Nene I believe.
    The British Labour government supplied technical information and a license to build the NENE to the Russians. Madness

    The technology of the jet engine and Frank Whittle's entire development of it was given freely by Britain to both the U.S. and Soviets post WW2. Both of the engines in the two aircraft here are therefore related, and of the same family as it were.

    There is a very cool F86 used in the old Lee Majors
