Arguably the most advanced strike aircraft of its day, the MiG-29's maneuverability and stability at high angles of attack make it a formidable weapon. Developed in the sinister days of the cold war, the concept behind the MiG was to deliver an aircraft designed to handle both offensive and defensive roles - a major departure from usual Soviet thinking. This is the story of the MiG's evolution, from the initial brief through design, development, testing, flight trials and deployment. Featuring archival footage and original interviews with designers and pilots, including Leonid Lobos, the man responsible for testing the aircraft to its limits.
