Mr. MiG: and The Real Story of the First MiGs in America (Hardcover)
The Soviet-built MiG-15 swept-wing fighter startled the world when it was introduced into combat during the Korean War in the early 1950s. The West had no idea that Russia could produce such a capable fighter. Some 35 years later, former Marine aviator Paul Entrekin burst onto the North American Air Show circuit with the first civilian-owned MiG-15. His story tells of the myriad of challenges in obtaining, test-flying, licensing this first-of-its-kind air show aircraft. It's a walk down memory lane that includes some of the most well-known names in aviation and shares the ups and downs, joys, triumphs, and also the tragedies and bitter losses of friends and fellow aviators.
Mr. MiG is an engaging, informative, and entertaining story that any aviation aficionado will enjoy.
