The MiG is both strange and beautiful at the same time... are those covers on the engine intakes?

A fantastic plane, cleverly captured here!

Answering the question from the user below: the MiG-29 has automatic anti-FOD doors in its air intakes. When they are closed, air intake is through openings above the leading edge extensions. The right side one is visible here.

Very nice angle. Thank you for sharing that detail about the anti-FOD doors.

Nice shot and angle -- What is the purpose of the open hatch above the canopy? Ventilation?

That thing above the canopy is a periscope for the backseater, so he can see the runway, looks kinda cool from the inside, a bit 1990 Star Trekkish, but interesting nonetheless.

MIG-29 can land and take-off from almost everywhere while other fighters would need hard clear runways ... old&smart russian philosophy of war technik.

WOW! excelent perspective! If you look at the mirror in the periscope you can acctually see the backseater looking into it. He is wearing sunglasses. Mirrors work both ways I suppose.
