Description

Very few people have seen Earth from a breathtaking vista of 82,000ft (25 kms). From the cockpit of a MiG-25, your view directly overhead fades into the darkness - you are literally on the edge of space. Below you, the curvature of the earth is awesomely apparent, and the horizon is 715 miles that's nearly 1100km across. Flying at Mach 2.5, or one mile every two seconds, a trip in the MiG-25 Foxbat is a unique flight mission that is the closest most people get being an astronaut.

Agenda
The price is a guide only and is subject to US$ currency fluctuations. Price includes: 2 nights stay B&B at a luxury downtown Moscow hotel, genuine leather flight jacket, round trip transfers between international airport and hotel, VIP airport customs and immigration processing on arrival, round trip transportation between hotel and Zhukovskiy Air Base with English-speaking guide, framed photograph of you with your pilot and aircraft, display-quality model of your aircraft, flight planning, training, medical check and 30 minute flight.

    The Big Question: "What is it like??"
    "After the ground crew has strapped you in, the canopy is shut around you. This is it, you're ready to go. The pilot behind you starts the aircraftÂ’s twin engines and performs his safety checks whilst they warm for a few minutes, then she taxis out onto the end of the runway, the longest in the world. After a few more minutes of checks , he opens the throttle still sitting on the brakes. You really are going now. The aircraft jumps forward as the brakes are released, the afterburners coming on with twin tails of orange flames giving renewed urge to the rapidly increasing speed. After a few more seconds, smooth take off, accelerating towards Mach 1 all the time. A couple of gentle 360 degree rolls bring a renewed surge of adrenaline and excitement. Quickly through the sound barrier and heading towards Mach 2 your pilot is just about to pull the stick back. The climb to altitude is quick, within 10 minutes the voice in your headset will start counting off the kilometres, 20, 21, 22,23,24 and finally 25 kilometress altitude, above 99% of the atmosphere. The sky will be black, the Earth curving away below you, the atmosphere a thin blue line glowing on the horizon. There is only space beyond. You will be one of the fastest travelling, highest flying humans . You can take photos and videos before your even more rapid descent, but only pulling 2Gs maximum, a final roll over the airfield, turn and land."
