  • Nellis AFB Threat Training Facility

    This US Air Force base has a nice collection of Soviet combat aircraft that were acquired to train US pilots. Among other things, the Americans bought 21 Mig-29 aircraft from the Republic of Moldova for a ridiculously low price of 1 million each. This provided the Americans with plentiful research toys and also prevented Iranians from buying the Migs.

    This website has links to other websites featuring photos by the same author. There are many excellent photos including this Soviet T-4 (A.K.A Su-100) supersonic bomber that was meant to be an answer to the XB-70 Valkyrie. I wasn't aware of the existence of this aircraft.
