(The Sun)   Honey, you KNOW a Porsche can't fly. Neither will the fighter jet I bought instead. But at least the Sun is here...honey?   (thesun.co.uk) divider line 45

TS-11 Iskra

Some quick Wikipedia-ing suggests it's a Polish TS-11 Iskra. PZL (on the side of the plane) was a Polish manufacturer. Compare with this picture, which shows a plane with very similar intakes.

Maybe a proper Fark military type could verify.

They're both just as (im)practical for city driving.

I may not be military, but it's Polish. Link (new window)

So either the Sun went more full retard than normal, or the guy really does have an Iraqi MIG-15 that they decided wasn't as photogenic.

MiG-15, Czech built? Lord this guy needs help getting his stories straight. I could see how he might possibly mistake it for an L-29 delphin, but a MiG 15???

Definitely an Iskra.

Hahaha what a stupid pile of crap, and so is the article writer since it isn't even a MiG. Article writer probably thinks anything that isn't an F-15 is a "MiG".

I'm guessing the Porsche they saved up for was a 924 or 944. Maybe even a 944 Turbo.

I don't think buying planes that can't be fixed to fly or just the cockpit of random aircraft qualifies you as a hobbyist. More like a junkyard person.

After communism collapsed in Albania I was there. Because they were really bad at capitalism and all fell victim to a pyramid scheme, I managed to buy a Mig-19 for about thirty dollars from one of their military junkyards. The hilarious bit was the guy throwing in a Mig-15 to seal the deal. There were tons of planes there. I just wanted to say I owned one. They weren't going anywhere. Last I saw, the British Top Gear was at that airfield and James May and Jeremy Clarkson were standing on one of them. I remember thinking, "That better not be one of mine."

My favourite was always the Mig-15. It was a dumpy little thing. I took flying lessons later on and wish I could have gone back and fetched it. I imagine the flight trim might have been a tad different from the Piper Tomahawk I trained in.

Speaking of Clarkson, he once bought a jet fighter as well, and had it delivered to his house. His wife was not pleased. Link (new window)

Ugly and under powered. But, once they get a little speed going, they fly quite nice. The takeoff is funny as you add power and hold the brakes. Then, after a quick glance at the engine instruments to make sure everything is ok, you release the brakes and then.....you just sit there. Acceleration is SLOW and even though it is a straight wing jet, a 6000 foot runway seems too short for the takeoff roll.

Dinodork: MiG-15, Czech built?


Well, to be totally fair the Czechs built a pile of MiG-15s under license from MiG and IIRC were the last operational user (well into the 1990s).

Unfortunately for this guy, the plane he's sitting in ain't one of them.

Don't worry, you are quite wrong.

In a related story, a buddy of mine has 2 Iskras, 3 MiG-15s, 2 MiG-17s and a MiG-21. All non-flying, but they look pretty neat sitting next to the hangar.

OMG, I am with YOU.

1. All their savings.
2. Don't have a driveable car
3. RAF isn't going to let him keep it in a hanger for free. Gonna get real expensive... real soon.
4. Didn't even get the right plane

'Family Guy' is funny when Peter does it, because normal people are farked when they do it... because, from the nose in the garage, this is not a one-time fark-up.
