How can it be?

Recommended Posts


I think that MiG-21 is a photoshopped Romanian LANCER. The second I'm not sure of, but just becuase the US and Russia aren't buddy-buddy doesn't mean that they will never fly together. There are some shots of some Tu-95s parked next to some B-52s floating around the web.

There are tons of pics of US and Russian fighter aircraft flying together. In fact, I have a buddy who flew F-15s against Russian SU-27s when they came to visit the US. Helped escort them through the US airspace system and everything.

 

The other pic I have no clue about...it looks a lot like a MiG-21 in JASDF markings...

What I noticed was that the escorting aircraft are not armed up. Must be diplomatic protocol under NATO. Unless those aren't shots of aircraft escorts but of someting else.

coolpilot: Those MiGs were the best we have at that time (that was from an exercise back in the 90s). And truth to be told no matter what everyone might say, I'm still proud that they have made an awesome job of defending our skies for more than 10 years, and they're still kicking strong.

For the supposed picture of the JASDF MiG-21, you can tell it's been photoshopped. The roundel is too clean, and the area around it has been blurred and smoothed out, hence the reduced amount of noise.

You probably could find the same things with French fighters, but in our case it's been a regular courtesy visit from Russian squadrons detachments to the EC 01/30 since the end of WW2 as commemoration of the original Normandie-Niemen squadron.

I had some old pics of some WWII era planes, you can see some russian Yaks and american P-51/47 and some spitfires sitting around the arifield.. 1944, And the story behind is, the Yaks made a transition flight. They landed on a allied airfield and the tried every plane against those yaks. No allied airplane could defet the Yaks in a dogfight. Planes were Yak3/9

 

Damn I have no scaner here
