Jetsicles!

Alan of GENX@40 is an avid collector of Jetsicles - airplanes on poles (not Andre'). I just came across a mother-lode of Jetsicles Around the World - some of the best being from Russia. I really like the ones that have some imagination put into them, vice the "pinned butterfly" look.

This is the first non-grainy, non-wartime photo I've *ever* seen of the Soviet Rocket Fighter, the Bereznyakov-Isaev BI-1 - although, I have *flown one* before. With salutary results. Anyway - click the pic to see the others.

Alan - there's some Canadian fighters in there, too.
