MiG-31: Intercepting the SR-71

4w ago



Simon Whilster seems to be doing a hell of a lot of videos about planes on his Megaprojects channel, which is absolutely no bad thing at all because he's managed to find a lot of interesting plane-related stories! This video is about the story behind the MiG-31, a plane that was designed to intercept the legendary SR-71 Blackbird. The MiG-31 and its predecessor the MiG-25 are both incredible and incredibly interesting interceptor aircraft and MiG-31s are very much still in use, even though they don't perform in their original role anymore.
