Really good call on the Finnish light plane from the previous page.

The MiG above - the STOL MiG-23 PD?

Congratulations to all! ;D

I have a problem here... :-|
For me, STOL MiG-23 PD or MiG-23-01 "faitless" are the same plane... :-[
I can be wrong But I'm going to give it to Graeme who said it first. We will see if Dhumphrey complains and we learn from the debate. ;)

Mike; The classic answer could also have been valid since its dorsal hatch for the STOL is the same that was later developed in the VTOL for Yak-141 to later become that chubby and gray sparrow that we all know. ;D

You turn Graeme!

No worries locopistion, if it's the same plane, I agree it's Graeme's turn.  :)

Is there a reason we can't see the aft end?  Is this a new build or a conversion of something?

Yes, I'm attempting to avoid showing the N registration.  :)

It was a new build way back then (1979) but it incorporated parts from a Mooney light aircraft, Learjet and a Ryan drone...

I will never doubt the courage of the pilot that flew that plane.
