Hello Guys, In 1975 Hungarian MiG-15's retired. In the near future one will fly again!

The Goldtimer Foundation & Jet Age Foundation are Hungarian companies, they operate and restore oldtimer-historical planes which served in the Hungarian Air Force.They had professional works called Lisunov Li-2 "Teve" cn18433209 HA-LIX(one of 2 flying Li-s over the World!).Flying Polikarpov Po-2 HA-PAO. Gerle-13 and other relics. Now they worked on L-29 Delfin and a MiG-21F-13(Czech AF 0220). They have other now nonrestored aircrafts-wreckages.

The history of our SB Lim-2:

They bought an old SB Lim-2 aircraft at Jasinka Airport from an old Polish fighter pilot. The aircraft built as a Lim-1 at 1954. May 11. for Polish AF, cn 1A-09002 Nr: 002. In 1957 they converted az SB Lim-1. After 1970 January 20. - 1970 June 17 rebuilt as SB Lim-2A with the back fuselage of MiG-15bis cn 1B-00611. Retired from the Polish AF 61.LPSZ at 1990. June 12. in Mierzecice. It send in Lodz-Lubinek Museum, after 4-Air Lines soon the Polish pilot. In 2006 the Jet Age Foundation and Goldtimer Foundation bought it. The Goldtimer stared an affiliated company called Jet Age Foundation. The Jet Age operate the Sas(Hungarian nickname of MiG-15's Sas=Eagle). The aircraft received markings of the Air Force of the Hungarian People's Army(1951-1990) - Nr: 031 with original silver camo. The real Hungarian MiG-15UTI Nr 031 cn 1A-06 031 built in 1953 and sold it to Bulgaria in 1976. Total flight hours till 1976. January 10.: 1162. Now she is under restoration at Tököl LHTL.

I trust the restorer's work. Many of MiG-15 fly over the world:

The age not problem. 60-70 years old aircrafts are flying too. I think about Spitfires,Hellcats, Bf 109 Gustavs

Lets Fly! :)

The age doesn't worry me so much. Many of the Hueys I have flown around in are Vietnam War veterans.

On 8th May, 2010. Started the first engine test with an aviation press brief at Tököl LHTL. The engine started well with a loud sound , after János Kulik, the chief engineer of the project said: ,, The aircraft's technological position is 99%, actually we are waiting for the Aeronautical Authority's aircraft aeronautical permission. Finally, seems like our aim come true, and expectedly we can take an active part in International Air Show and Military Display at the Air Base of Kecskemét."

One of my favourite, too. The aircraft is finished yet, but she still resting on the ground! There are some 'problem' with the type certificate, and more personal malice in the deeper background. This make longer the tests. When I will hear any news, I will post it.

Lets Fly! :)

Best Regards,

Péter
