I think that the reason it works is if the shimmy is a coupling between the fore-aft and up-down modes of vibration, with maybe a little torsion thrown in, this changes the fore-aft stiffness just enough that it decouples the modes. (For you techie types....).

Not that it really matters, I was trying to make a point that I am amazed at the performance of the airplane. Not out here trying to set any records or compensate for anything just thought it was cool.

A clean MiG-23 can outrun almost anything else in a clean configuration and in straight flight.

Peck on Amazon.

If Iím not mistaken our good friend Vlad flew MIG23ís as well, help us out Vlad..
