There were a dozen of other lucky photographers, including Tokunaga The Great. I felt rather like a schoolboy with dad's Sony H5, desperate spare for recently stolen Sony Alpha kit (which itself was not the best) among guys with lenses approaching average schoolboy height...this prevented me from any attempts to shoot the flights. Hope you enjoyed the MAKS series.
Well thats the same question i have too ( somewhat)... i've read whatever i could find online about the new Mig-29 family(K/KUB, M/M2 and 35), and it seem they are designed for maximum comonality...about the wing shown on that model of the Mig-35, i've looked closely at the Indian K/KUB , and as we know they have a bigger flaps of a slighly modified shape ,yes the wing haveing now a style remotely resembling the F-15s...now , the indian K are new built while the Mig-29M2/35 demonstrator is an older airframe ...so , in a potentilally new Mig-29M2 or 35 airframe , are they going to use a wing configuration similar to that of the K , but with slighly smaller flaps , whilst keeping the revised shape?( so maby thats what that model meens?)
Another little detail are the fins , is it me or are those from the model looking like they have slightly less chord ? Its clear the fin tip is not racked , on the other hand on the new indian airframes it is ...( totally unrelated , but i think would be bad idea to "un-rack" the fin tips , spoils the legendary look of the aircraft!!! ;D)
So ...are there any news of the status of this programme? Are there any prototypes in the makeing? ( i remember i've read somewhere about actully modifying a K airframe for the definitive Mig-35 demonstrator...)
