An Algerian Mig-29 made an extraordinarily low pass over Mecheria airfield a few days ago. If he'd towed a lawnmower behind him, I reckon he'd have got a full bag of grass cuttings in no time at all . . .
The heavy smoke from the engines is a hallmark of the Mig-29, just as it was for the F-4 Phantom II. The later development of the MiG-29, the MiG-35, is better in that respect, but the smoke is still visible.
