    Picture 3 has a couple of "Old Dogs", no doubt those guys love the Flanker, its the airplane they dreamed of flying all those years of riding the front of those little pointy jets, don't get me wrong, I'd love to fly a Mig-21 now, in fact I had a half an invitation to come to Quincy, Il to ride in the back seat...

    I could've even bought a Mig-21 a couple of times for less than 50 Grand,,, but I'd be broke the first week of flying that thing, LOL.

    Agreed, the Flanker and the Fulcrum family's design are IMO among the most beautiful of any fighter jet. While not disrespecting the F-14,F-15 and F-18. Only the F-16 comes close to matching the elegance of these birds.
    I have always hoped that China would make a entire spinoff of the Fulcrum family to complete the collection, or at least build a twin engine J-10. But that was not to be.
