The engines of that MIG29 seems to be running a bit hot.. nice photos! But where did Mikojan find that drop tank, it seems more appropriate for a farm tractor than a supersonic jet?

When I was packing all stuff before going home I realised that the teleconverter was not at all mounted on the 100-400L as I thought. It was sitting properly packed in its pouch
The Red Bull aerobatic team has obviously been watching the Top Gun movie... So now they are performing loops with two planes canopy to canopy and flying level flight with a third plane spiraling around the pair..

McCurdy. The replica shown below flew in 2009 in celebration of 100 years of flight. (Behind it you can see his hydrofoil
