Congratulations to David Ribbe for winning the coveted “Mr. Top Gun” title at this year’s invitational competition! This was David’s first year flying this MiG at Top Gun, after flying it at the Jet World Masters in Switzerland earlier this year. David’s 88.9-inch-span jet is packed with scale details, like a sliding canopy, speed brakes, flaps, sequenced gear doors and retracts, and its polished aluminum finish (with thousands of rivets!) is like a mirror. And it isn’t just a flightline beauty; David flies it expertly. We congratulate David the “Rivet King” Ribbe on his well-deserved win. (Thanks also to Peter Goldsmith for the use of his photo!)
