    Thought this was a late -23 at first but looking at the intakes and a few other details it's a 27

    This has seen better days, common consensus seems it hasn't moved for 4/5 years and not flown since about 1992

    Left between two hangars at Hawarden Airport nr Chester

    Yep, it is just possible that the weathering on that MiG may not "just buff right out".
