MiG 17 Russian Fighter Jet Planned as Backdrop for Corvette Owners

Corvettes go fast, but not as fast as a MiG 17 Russian Fighter Jet. Despite the very obvious difference in horsepower, both will be on display as part of Winter AutoFest starting February 22 at the SUN ‘n FUN Campus in Lakeland. For the hundreds of Corvette owners planning to be part of the show, Carlisle Events is pleased to announce that you’ll have a chance to park and pose for photos with this MiG 17 Russian Fighter Jet as the backdrop.

The unique opportunity is available to all registered Corvettes that are part of the NCRS event as well as those that are part of the Corvette-only showcase backed by Carlisle Events. Best of all, the photo op is FREE! Roll your Corvette up to the plane, park and snap the photo. Please note, we do not anticipate a professional photographer being part of this feature, rather you’re encouraged to take photos using your own camera. The end result will offer you a priceless keepsake, showcasing America’s Sportscar in the foreground and a super sleek airplane in background. Don’t miss out!

If you want to register for the event, learn more via the links below. There are many options available for you, plus with this being such a Corvette-heavy feature, expect some special guests, seminars, vendors and more.
