    The extraordinary story of a runaway Soviet Air Force MiG-23 that flew from Poland to Belgium in 1989, sparking a major security scare between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, and ended in tragedy.

    Sad that Mig has loss its former glory. Sukhoi is the best for Russia.

    MiG-41 is coming in 2025. MiG-41 compared to MiG 1.44 is like Su-57 compared to Su-47. It's amazing.

    Not now, but in the near future. China was dirt poor in the 1980s and look at them now.

    Perhaps. But one should never get cocky.
