Currently unavailable for purchase


Original drawn in pencil and color pencil on 11×14 acid free White Bristol 110lb. Paper and finished with lacquer spray for protection.

This drawing is of an actual aircraft owned and operated by the Western Sky Aviation Warbird Museum in St. George Utah. Aircraft has original engine and instruments.

MIG – 15UTI
First seeing service in 1949 the Mig 15 was one of the finest swept wing fighter jets developed by the Soviet Union. It was the primary fighter jet of the North Korean/Chinese forces in the Korean War. The Soviet fighter jet could out perform the Allied F-86 Sabre but the communist pilots were not as well trained and experienced as the allied force pilots, this combination of aircraft and pilots would provide some of the most extraordinary air to air combat dogfights in the skies over North Korea in an area known as “Mig Alley.”
During its production there were over 12,000 aircraft produced in several countries including the Soviet Union, Poland, China and Czechoslovakia.

    Excellent Trenton. I concurr with your assessment of the aeroplane and the pilots thereof. Made the Sabre nickname of ‘Acemaker’. – Ted

  • Thanks Ted. I forgot to say that this drawing is of an actual aircraft operated by a museum in St. George Utah. It has the original engine and instruments. The museum flies guy in for airshows who has hours on the type plus reads and understands the Russian language. It has a very distinct sound I must say. Really cool!!!!!

    Brilliant pencil work Trenton,
    Would grace any wall, cheers Neil

  • Thanks Neil! In the 60’s and 70’s it would not have graced a wall. I remember when I was young I had hung a picture of a model of a Russian airplane on my wall and my parents made me take it down because they were worried what people my think when visiting. I saw a neat airplane, my parents saw the politics. My oldest son is now serving a LDS mission in Russia. How things have changed.
