Missile missing an F-15 (Eagle)

 

Observe the Iraqi pilot’s maneuver of his Mig 29. The plane skids and pivots on its center, allowing it to fly forward even with its axis on the vertical. This is probably the reason why the Americans nicknamed the Mig 29 as the Fulcrum—-it pivots.

The Iraqi pilot could have pulled it off had he not ran out of height.
