Maybe they're supposed to be the remnants of Hungarian fighter pilots? (The Hungarian's did use E's in '41-43 on the Eastern Front, with F/Gs as well...)

SA...to wreck something like that after all the time to build it would make me sick. they guy would have had to put a chute on it like they have for ultralight AC. something malfunctions and you kill the engines and deploy the chute....if he didnt he's crazy.
Yeah I'd be pretty sick to my stomach if I or someone else wrecked that RC Plane. Lot of money down the drain with one failed flick of the controls.

My guess is that the cgi models are stock from a previous film, maybe pearl harbor? that would explain it.

edit: curious, I had a look at Pearl Habour's cgi 109s. Theyre not the same. Pearl Harbor has Me109F's
And they even made up the name for the MiGs. I've never seen or read anything on a MiG-28 before. (Silly 80s Flight movies.)
