Takeoff and landing Mig-31 from the strip. Aviasabaz Savasleyka. Personal impressions

18
The first time I was so close to the plane. You could reach out and touch.
Grace, beauty, power - everything is here at once. Sometimes there was a feeling that the moment was alive.


A huge difference, to look at the take-off from the stands of the air show, or just like that, next.



Warming up and refueling machines.



Before take-off, the aircraft is once again checked by technicians at the beginning of the runway.



The pilot checks the system, at this time, the aircraft starts to move everything that can move. At this time, the feeling that it is alive and predatory is further enhanced.





Technician bypasses aircraft visual inspection.



All systems are normal.





The machine is ready.



Go...



The moment of takeoff. The roar of engines turns into a scream, the smell of aviation kerosene. The air is shaken, the power is felt with the whole body.



The hum becomes unbearable, the pilot releases the brake and the car, slightly nodding, abruptly picks up speed.
It's fine!





We were shown a pass over the runway at low altitude with the chassis released.



Landing.



The moment of touching the strip. Landing, much quieter than taking off, at the moment of touching a small squeal and that's it.



Mig31 - taxis to the parking lot, to check the systems.



Technicians check the plane and in an hour, everything will be repeated again.

    He was in this garrison in 1985 and 1986. Wonderful people served there at that time. Only the best memories remained. I won’t talk about airplanes, I still don’t have enough words to express my enthusiasm (to see the MiG-29, Su-27, MiG-31 alive), for me, the Head of the All-Russian Air Force was a celebration of the soul at that time. Happy holidays guys !!!

    MiG-31BM is the best heavy interceptor in the world.

      He is simply the best in the world. Looking at his weight and I can’t believe that he is capable of what he is capable of.

    For this handsome man, about 50% of the onboard radio equipment, the system of short-range radio navigation and automatic landing was developed by JSC VNIIRA. Many Chief Designers of this equipment and systems are still working, including me. A number of articles about this interceptor were published by VO. There will be time to read at least "The True Case". I have the honor.

    Thank you, admired the handsome man! He himself served an urgent 70-72. in the Primorsky Territory on the MIG-21 (graceful, but predatory "baby"!)

    In the early 90s, my jaw almost fell off when I first saw the work of old-school MiG-31 pilots as a young lieutenant. What they just did not do! This is an almost vertical take-off and aerobatics at low altitudes, for which this aircraft is completely not intended. Of course it’s scary and you worry about the guys very much, but beauties !!! And there was also a case when we provided guidance on the MiG-31 training ground and the navigator pointed to the target from such an angle that two targets were immediately shot down with one missile. Of course they were close at one echelon. It is very difficult to fix a missile’s flight, except perhaps one two marks and then by accident, but it was clearly recorded on the radar and PRV as two marks from the targets began to fall to pieces, gradually turning into a smeared falling cloud of fragments. These are the wonders this unique machine can do.
    But I would like the concept of a powerful long-range interceptor capable of reliably controlling not only airspace but also outer space to be further developed.

    Powerful car without talking. I couldn’t see it live, only the MiG-25 took off, but the meaning is about the same. Such an apparatus should still live and live, because no replacement is yet to be expected. Yes, if there will be a successor in the future, it is unlikely that he will fly at such a speed - the emphasis will be on hypersonic missiles with a long range.
    Not a plane, but a monument to his difficult era. soldier

    Takeoff and landing Mig-31 from the strip. Aviasabaz Savasleyka. Personal impressions
    I understand the author of the article ... I myself ran to the airdrome more than once. To look at the takeoff of the MiG25, the older brother - the MiG31 ... what you experience at this moment is very difficult to convey in words, since this is an explosive mixture of fear, admiration and wild, uncontrollable joy and pride ... Alas, the video cannot convey the whole range of noise that the engines of these interceptors make, it seems that the sky is tearing to pieces ... Good luck to the pilots of our MiGs and let the number of takeoffs of their planes always be equal to the number of soft landings ...

    In connection with this remarkable article, let us recall once again the man who put this car on the wing, taught it to fly at the cost of his life: Hero of the Soviet Union. Honored Test Pilot of the USSR, Major General of Aviation, Lenin Prize Laureate, Senior Test Pilot of the A. Mikoyan Design Bureau A. Fedotov
    He died almost 30 years ago on April 4, 1984.
    May the earth be heaven for you Alexander Vasilievich!

    Thanks to the author for the excellent photo story about the MIG-31 !!! I would love to see this beauty myself, but I'm afraid it will not work, I am old, and there is no military airfield nearby.

      Come on, maybe in Belarus Russia will place the MiG-31 along with the Su-27! Especially in the light of events with joint Baltic exercises with NATO.

      The plane itself can be viewed at the "Stalin Line" near Minsk. True, only in a static mode, not on takeoff-in-flight-landing. Alas.

    A small amendment - not "Mig", but "MiG", because Mikoyan and Gurevich. And so, everything is fine!

    Yu.V. Andropov, when they adopted the 31st, said about NATO "now let them fly wherever they want" ... What kind of aircraft can you say that?
