Mig 1.42 Set for First Flight
The Russian government has revealed the configuration of the MiG Project 1.42 Fighter technology demonstrator after years of mystery, and MiG officials expect it will make its maiden flight by March. The ANPK MiG design bureau plans to present the MiG 1.42 officially to the Russian government at the Zhukovsky flight test facility on Jan. 12. The aircraft has been talked about for more than 5 years, and occasionally it has not been clear whether it has flown (AW&ST June 23, 1997, p. 22; May 31, 1993, p. 23).
