Burried Mig-25 in Iraq

Recommended Posts

Here's the skinny:

 

OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM -- A search team discovers a MiG-25 Foxbat buried beneath the sands in Iraq. Several MiG-25 interceptors and Su-25 ground attack jets have been found buried at Al-Taqqadum air field west of Baghdad. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. T. Collins)

Man, what a waste, that is just sad...

 

Indeed!

 

Maybe thats one of the reasons they cant win... No respect for the equipment... that and the lack of guts to try and use it.

 

So sad

I guess that gives a new meaning to "burry your head in the sand." lol

 

Wonder why we are going through the trouble to dig these things up. Perhaps we keep one or two of them and restore them for training use? who knows.

I saw a picture of a buried Su-25 in my local paper, kinda sad, so many iraqi flags to paint on F-15's, just sitting underground.

Lets put X-ray pods on the Warthog...and give them all Bunker-Buster Bombs!!!!! The A-10 could have the priviledge of getting the 1st Air-Underground Kill of a Mig!!!!

Actually, it's not quite as bad as you might think,

I used to work Corriosion Control for Marine Corps Aircraft,

If they placed the Intake covers and exhuast covers on the birds

they could be un-buried and made servicable in a short time

(not over night mind you, but a veryshort time).

 

Consider it a "hastey preservation" kinda like our own

moth-balled fleet at Davis Moffet. Aircraft Corrosion would be min.

 

It also adds to Mr Bush's arguement of buried WMD!

 

Keep diggin and we all may be very suprised at what else pops outta the sands of time.

THat's true though. If he can hide a huge Mig25 under the sand he can certainly hide a missle full of bio-chemical agents. Who knows whats scattered under the sand over there.

How did they find Mig's under the ground?

And why are they there? If you are pilot of Iraq you have to train live under sand and dust.
