About 15 years ago a Mig-29 was going around the country on a goodwill tour to American air shows. It was at the Kalamazoo Air Show in Michigan. What really stood out comparing the Mig-29 to the F-15 Eagle and the F-16 Falcon which both flew that day, was that the Mig smoked, lots of black smoke. Even in afterburner it smoked slightly. When it landed it deployed a chute to help it stop. On the other hand the F-15 and F-16 was clean and sharp and and out classed the Mig easily in the flight demos.

I love RD-33 thick black smoke at full military power. Well Kamerad, I dare you to design such a sturdy engine, which can tolerate rough field conditions while having so easy maintenance. Nothing in the West can cope with it.
Talking about mock air combat, mid-1990s joint exsercises between USAF and Luftwaffe showed MiG-29 won in dogfight against F-16, mainly because of Shlem helmet sight and superior all-aspect R-73 missiles. Times have changed and technology improved, still I won't underestimate MiGs...
