That'd be SCHWEET but my SSO would shit a kitten if I told him I was going to Moscow on vacation
to take a ride in a MiG or Sukoi.

The powers that be wouldn't be too amused, me thinks!

The men in black would be all over me if I went to Russia and dropped thousands of dollars. That much is certain.

I'd give up my left nut for the "edge of space" flight on the MiG-25.

Thanks Wedge -- I needed that!

I wonder if they do hang glider rides. Or if I could afford even that.

Towards the middle of this page (see link below), a woman won a trip to do that in a MIG 25....$18,000.00 trip

As a side note, the story about the "Kegsket" ...that is my father standing by his new beer cooler at EAA this year.

Wow that would be the coolest thing ever!

That'd be one hell of a fun ride, but too steep of a price for me.

Wow- thats not your average skyride.

Who ever said money can't buy happiness didn't know where to shop.
