Straight out of hangars Marina has taken photos of Russian MIG-31, lot of them produced way before being disassembled into smallest parts and then assembled back with totally renewed look and feel.

But this material has not been used for over twenty years so they make new cabin covers  with triplex glass. Many more similar updates are being made to these planes. Let’s see the photos:

Then, after all repair and service jobs are done planes go back to the air force to continue their service as totally refurbished and renewed machines.

    That Futurism style artwork is beautiful. I keep thinking of the Youtube video “The Orb – Beautiful Day”.

    Aircraft parts wear out quickly, especially engines and landing gear. So they have to be replaceable. Avionics equipment get updated too.
