LUIGINO CALIARO TALKS TO TWO PILOTS WHO SHARE A PASSION FOR THE MIG-17
“This thing is fast, truly fast. It’s also the most stable formation platform I’ve ever flown.” Former USAF pilot Jeff Kaney was summing up his MiG-17 Fresco. It was part of the ‘Black Diamonds’ and still wears the distinctive ‘Arctic’ camouflage also sported by that team’s Aero L-39 Albatros trainers. This machine, N6953X, is a Polish-built Lim-6bis dating from 1962.
