Russian Mig-31 Foxhound as you’ve never seen it (using GoPro cameras)

  1. What is that behind the cockpit? At first I thought it was a speed brake. But it was deployed on takeoff on at least one aircraft at 1:09 and 1:20. Is it a Ram Air Turbine of some kind? AOA probe?

      • No, this is front mirror. It retracted soon after takeoff and deployed before landing to provide view forward for back pilot. It is impossible to make landing from back cockpit without this mirror.
