The scientific tourist #342 — Chinese MiG-15

I’ve written at length previously about the MiG-15 — an impressively compact (and lethal!) little fighter from early in the Cold War.  But I came across this picture of another example of the type while sorting through my digital images.  This MiG is on display at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington:

This particular MiG-15 was purchased from China in 1990, and donated to the museum in 2003.  It’s still painted in the colors of the Chinese air forces.
