I was watching the new Top Gear tonight and they were driving on a old Albanian air field with several Mig-15s (and other Migs). Footage starts about 50 minutes in: http://www.streetfire.net/video/top-gea ... 197603.htm

Most likely the air base at Kucove. Fire up Google Earth and plug in N40 46 28.33 E019 55 55.17

I didn't know you guys your side of the pond got it straight away,even on the net. I thought it was always a few months later than broadcast here. The Migs were an unexpected bonus, but I would think quite normal a find in old eastern block country's.

We used to have to get it off the net, or wait for BBC America to play them at least one season behind. They finally got smart and are showing the current season on BBC America one day after they air in the UK. It's by far my favorite show on television period.

The Brit version is so much better than the recent US ripoff. after watching one episode of the US show I was wondering "Why?"

Yeah. The US version is painful to watch. I didn't even make it all the way through the first one.

Its a no miss program over here. Hopefully you will see a car I have a hand in on Top Gear at the end of Feb. It should feature very high on the test track leader board :D .
