If you're a Mig 21 fan as I am you'll love this. Music is perfect for the subject!!

With all those talking about perf measurement downto half a knot and arguing about how many feet wider was that type of plane turn radius, here is a wonderful document of how it really happens when all the talking is over...

Ah yes, the "aluminum overcast".

If you have not stood next to (or rather under) one you cannot get a real grasp of the scale of that aircraft.

It is simply amazing.

One of the very few USAF aircraft that has the piston engines are facing the right way. :)

One though to J.Adams

The best book I have read on this story is this one from Thompson, one of the test pilot of the NASA (ex-Bell) . In this book you have the detailled retranscrition of radio com during the last tragic flight of Adams. A thrilling read when his plane departed at hypersonic flight during re-entry (I am in a spin... I am in a spin) - nothing he could hve done with such primary flight ctrls
