Another treat at the Ukrainian National Museum was this scrapped MiG-25. For those of us who grew up with grainy pictures (take from far away) of the world’s fastest fighter, being able to peer beneath the skin like this is extremely gratifying. Following the disintegration of the USSR, Ukraine inherited a great deal of Soviet hardware. Perhaps a British museum should recover and renovate this aircraft, it would certainly be a welcome addition to Duxford or Cosford!
