This should be fun
2 out of 3 attempts taxiing through the gate ended up hitting the woodwork!

But - no contest unless there's enough interest - so if you are in, reply to this to let us know - we need at least 5-10 contestants to make it interesting. The only rule is that nobody can take this too seriously and that I, as the supreme dictator of the known universe (in my own head) will reserve final say if there is a dispute (and I will make the decision arbitrarily without any proof, logic, or common sense, so please, avoid disputes at all cost.)

Oh - and what the heck - I'll even pony up a babblebat (325 TP) to the winner once all the votes are in - and Roger - I"M PAYING THIS TIME!!

Who's in?
Sounds fun, I'm in. My Mig is already beat and battered after 6 months of flying it. Whats a few more hits going to hurt. lol
Although, if I smack into the ground, the 12" of fluffy snow probably won't hurt it anyway!

Getting psyched, to run away with all the prizes in the still-photo category!

WWU,


Please don't tell me that you did the nose improvements during the limbo contest! It would shatter my impression of the MIG being a tough little flyer!

Let's just say that it was a *similar* sort of contest - and I was the only contestant - and I won the "lowest altitude" award with a number that had a dash in front of it! A little hot water and glue and you'll see her with a new nose job here shortly - just in time for the contest!

The judges have reviewed your post and have unanimously agreed that it counts as an irrevocable agreement to enter the contest. The law firm that represents the judges is well known for enforcing such irrevocability. I think it will be far cheaper for you to simply buy yourself a Mig and get practicing! Besides, worst case scenario, your Mig won't be "fixed wing" for long and you'll find yourself back in familiar territory! Just make sure you get it on video when it happens!

Does it still count if the wings are not fixed when the aircraft goes under the limbo stick?

In this contest - pretty much anything counts as long as it either:

A) Impresses everyone who watches
B) Makes everyone laugh
C) Incites sympathy
D) Makes the judge look good


So, your hypothetical scenario (for now - I guarantee you that if YOU don't do it, I probably will end up doing it!) would count in at least 3 of the four categories and potentially the first one as well.

See, nothing to lose! Go buy a Mig!

I will have to figure a way to film it(and post it), but otherwise I am in. I assume sliding it through on a belly landing won't count.

Im in!

Can I get bonus points for writing my name in the sand with the tail of my plane while inverted right before I make my pass?

Only if you do it blindfolded and with one thumb tied behind your back!

In case you might have wondered, Didn't know or are curious, here is a cool history of the MiG. I don't know if they cover it but MiG 15 #502 was reported to have been flown by Nickolai Ivanov.

Wings of the Red Star: Duel Over Korea - Mig-15 2/4 (10 min 0 sec)


Of course its better to satrt with the first vide in the series :/
Hope you enjoy it.
