Mikoyan MiG-25RU

12/31/2009. Converted from a standard MiG-25RU two-seat trainer, this aircraft was used as a high-speed ejection seat test-bed. The original canopy of the rear cockpit was replaced by a steel hood with a large opening through which the ejection seat, carrying a dummy, was ejected.
