Description

MiG-15 Flight in Czech Republic – Fly the Jet-Legend

We proudly present the first jet flight in the famous classic military fighter jet, the MiG-15 Fagot. The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 successfully intercepted UN fighter jets and bombers in the Korea War. The term “MiG-Alley” is well-known beyond aviation, military and history. It is the region around Yalo river (Korean: Amrok or Amrok-kang) between China and North Korea (DPRK), notorious for countless dogfights.

After the US Air Forces with F-80 shooting star and F-84 Thunderjet aircraft roamed the skies over North Korea for several months, the Soviets decided to support North Korea and China with high-performance MiG-15 fighter jets. Sovjet pilots also piloted the MiG-15s themselves, but until today neither the USSR nor at a later date Russia ever officially admitted that they had engaged in the war with their own pilots. The counterattack started November 1st, 1950. First, the MiG-15s shot down an American P-51 Mustang. Later on that day Sovjet fighter pilot Semyon Jominich shot down the first jet and is therefore credited with the first jet-vs-jet kill in history. Jominich shot down US pilot Frank Van Sickle in an F-80C.

MiG-Alley: MiG-15 Fagot Superior to Western Aircraft

Countless aerial battles for air superiority tool place over the 100 miles long “MiG Alley”. The US mainly flew the North American F-86 Sabre in these dogfights – the North Korean side the MiG-15 Fagot. Before the US Air Force introduced the F-86, the MiG-15 Fagot was superior to American fighters – on top of that the US forces had to fly around 350 miles to the MiG Alley – a huge disadvantage. The MiG-15 had been flown not only be North Korean and Chinese Forces but also secretly by Sovjet fighter pilots. In a single day – known as “Black Thursday” – 30 MiG-15s shot down 12 B-29 “Superfortress” bombers – protected by 100 F-80 “Shooting Star” and F-84 “Thunderjet” – with no casualties on the Soviet side. The pressure became so strong that the US forces evacuated to Japan – leading the way for North Korea to conquer nearly all of South Korea, including Seoul. Top fighter ace in the Korean War was the Soviet fighter pilot Nikolai Sutyagin with 21 claimed kills.

And yes, you will be able to fly that legend, and even control it yourself!
