    I sat in a MIG-29 (museum display) during a business trip to Nellis AFB. I couldn't have ever flown the plane, my shins hit the instrument panel such that I couldn't get my feet on the rudder pedals. That plus an ejection would have amputated me.

    Tight cockpit, I'm 6' 2"/183#, no way in Hades could I fit. Don
