I can`t belive how clean and smooth that colour scheme makes this jet! Would someone please wake the pilot up, he seems to be zZzZz...! :)

Wow, great addition to the database. Very interesting comment about the built-quality too. Five stars.

Agree that the paint scheme makes a lot of the plane's shortcomings hard to think about, because it does look good (the photo itself is great!). As for the pilot, he's probably trying to make something work, perhaps the nosewheel steering or maybe the brakes.

Also, note the braking parachute has been deployed and has already been disconnected (if it wasn't torn free) and the radome is too far back for low speed engine operation. Maybe that's what's got him distracted. I really feel for pilots who obviously LOVE to fly but are stuck doing it for poor and/or oppressive regimes, like the Libyan defectors (at least they had excellent aircraft).
