Full AB! This is how the East German Air Force tested their jet engines. The people on the photo are covering their ears - and so are the people in the surrounding villages, I guess.

I CAN'T BELIVE!
They are not wearing ear protection!?!?!?
Well I've been on the engine test of MiG-21 in Croatia, and the noise is so loud that even with a headset it is very uncomfortable.
But this two guys are insane!

I like how the mig is leaning forward in the wheel blocks... and it doesnt look like anyone is in the cockpit in case the plane escapes!

Jesus, man, I've never seen a Mig-21 with its aft fuselage removed for engine testing and the like. The 3 guys around it seriously need some sound-dampening headphones. "can you hear me now?" (in German) "WHAT?" (in German)LOL
