And here are two videos. The first is a rare Video of the Mig35 (Modified Mig29OVT). The first 20 seconds is from the movie Stealth, showing few incredible maneuvers on the U.S. side, which is able to do by only the Russian Crafts in the reality.
It's on Russian, but check out some of the maneuvers from 7:50, what this beauty is able to do. It's amazing.
None of the U.S. crafts are able to do this.

And a nice propaganda video of the fight of an F/A18 and a Mig29 (It's propaganda, because the Mig29 had chance approximately 7 times to shot down the F18). Hungarians have this Mig29 beauty. It's knows quite more, then the U.S. fighters (In trainings, Hungarians have beaten Harriers, F15s, F16s and even F/A18s with our old Mig29 numerous times for 10-1.
). The Mig29 is still the best interceptor craft. But here is the propaganda video of the US Navy.

Now, while I have a severe Russian bias, I gotta say: No. The MiG-29 is a good aircraft (and the MiG-35 is absolutely incredible showing off maneuvers), and I won't disagree with that. But saying that it is the best interceptor is quite a stretch. The MiG-29 is, to my knowledge, more made for air superiority... During the Cold War. If you want to say that a Russian aircraft is the ultimate interceptor, talk about the Su-35 or Su-37.

Considering that the F-22 Raptor is likely to simply smite the MiG-29 at range in any combat situation, I'm not sure that the Fulcrum is the best choice. It's not usually a good idea to say that Cold War hardware is better than a fresh-off-the-line jet. The only way you could argue a win for a Fulcrum would be a MiG-35 and an F-22 at dogfight range.

Sorry to go off topic here, but skunkworks82, I notice you're making multiple posts minutes apart. Why not just make one post at a time with multiple images instead? I can't remember if there is a rule about that here, but I just thought i'd bring it up, because one could almost see it as one spamming for ats points.

Now back on topic.

I'm not sure if this can be considered as a rare aircraft (or the photo itself to be rare), but since these never made it into production I think it fits the thread subject.





My two favorite non-production aircraft.

Heres some more information:
Taken atop a barrel roll of F-4E, 66-0323 above this formation of Boeing E-3A, 76-1605, F-4Es, 66-0330 and 66-0382. This photograph was a well kept secret for some years, as the pilot specifically asked that it not be shown to USAF officials, because one was not supposed to roll around the E-3A! The snow on the ground makes the airplanes difficult to spot, but it is something not likely to be done again.

Could you find the original for me Pistonzor? I've tried but I can't. I searched for 'American Boeing 767' and 'AA Boeing 767' and also '767 flameout' but without any luck.

Thanks if you can help.

Just another small selection for no reason other than I like them;

Makes the V-22 look like a carbuncle, shame its only 20in long and made of balsa wood - Westland, c.1970



France dreams, Lockheed has a nightmare


We'd have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those pesky Jets - pinnacle of UK piston fighter design, Martin Baker MB5


She seems to get prettier with age, 14Sqn Tornado GR.4

waynos you may remember this little Fench beast, the Dassault MirageIIIV 'Balzac' VTOL prototype. Powered by a SNECMA turbojet and 8!! RR lift jets mounted vertically either side of the fuselage centreline. I have seen the lift jets referred to as both RR RB108 & RB162, but Im probably just "splitting hairs" on this.



You may be interested to know that one of the original concept display models (I think owned by RR originally, it carries their name plate) is still in existence, right here in Sydney. It sits in the main foyer of the TAFE college aeroskills building at Padstow, Sydney just down the road from Bankstown airport. The model is still substantially complete, albeit a little worse for wear after 40 odd years. Sadly I dont have a photo as I havent been back to the college this year.

LEE.
