MiG-15 Fagot, LATE MiG-15bis:

 

AT THE WAR EAGLES AIR MUSEUM

This photo set was taken of the late MiG-15bis owned by the War Eagles Air Museum in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.  The photographs were taken to show additional differences between early and late production MiG-15bis aircraft and to illustrate features not included in our other MiG-15 photo sets. 

The War Eagles Air Museum has a truly outstanding collection of beautifully restored aircraft, and they have always been cooperative with Detail & Scale.  Several of their aircraft have appeared in our Detail & Scale Series of books.  We strongly recommend this fine museum to everyone.

Although some instruments have been updated, the instrument panel in this late MiG-15bis is very much like what it would have been in an operational aircraft.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

The right side of the cockpit has also been well maintained. The owners have used red embossing tape to identify all of the features in the cockpit. (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

On this aircraft, the flaps are lowered providing an opportunity to see details of the inside of the split flaps. Also note the cutout on the inboard wing fence. This cutout was not on all MiG-15s, and when present it was only on the left inboard wing fence. (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)

On late MiG-15bis Fagot Bs, the landing light was deleted from the airflow divider in the inlet.  To replace it, a retractable landing light was installed in this position under the left wing root, just forward of the landing gear well.  The light is shown here in its retracted position.  It hinged down when needed for night operations.  (Detail & Scale copyright photo by Bert Kinzey)
