Another Hot Bird Coming Through - MIG 21

William Ward is a 14,000 hour ATP and currently  the Captain of an Airbus A-320.  Will also flew an MD-80 for the same commercial airline company.  Will has been flying for 24 years and graduated from the University of North Dakota aviation program.   While at UND Will lead the UND Flying Team to a first place finish in Regional and National Competition.  He also received the Jeppson Outstanding Team Member Award.
Will is extremely knowledgeable on a wide variety of Soviet aircraft capabilities  and considers the MiG-17 one of the best all around fighters of the era.  He has flown 60 different aircraft from the Sukhoi 29, A-26, Invader, DC-6, F-104, T-33, MiG 15, MiG 21, and MD-80 series.
I've been told he accelerates showmanship and really flies this bird.
Don't miss this one.
