Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15bis: “Old soldiers never die, they just blow things away”.

There’s still life in those old winged peasants…., even grounded. These Czechoslovakian MiG-15bis were used as snowblowers to clean the train tracks of ice and snow. Sadly mutilated with their rear fuselage and wings removed, the VK-1 jet engine was operated from the cockpit. Photo taken at Liberec (Czech Republic, now).

Yep, it’s awfully cold outside right now.
