The MiG 17

One of the stars of the show was the MiG-17.

Done up in Polish colors, this two-seater MiG-17 was a serious crowd-pleaser.

The afterburner certainly caught your attention, click any and all pics to embiggen and enjoy it in larger size.

The MiG was seriously maneuverable and did some impressive flybys and quick rolls.

The low passes to finish its performance were seriously low, allowing for some great pics:

Then in for a perfect landing.

Looks odd to have a radome in the middle of the intake. At least it looks like a radome to me.

Good eye, it is indeed a radome. It's the Mig-17 PF variant with Izumrud radar.
