so long as the goal is to get the nose pointed down, and airspeed up past safe levels.
try it... test it...
When I went to flight school we were taught by definition a flat spin is a spin you can't recover from.

An airfoil will not generate lift (and resultant drag) if it's maximum angle of attack is exceeded.

I would think having something like vectored thrust would make all the difference.

Eject eject eject, only time you have a chance to recover from a flat spin, is in a plane designed to make flat spins, like some arobatic planes.

Not saying it cant happen, but flying jets, is all about making good desisions, in the right time, and here its Eject

He also said, it's not possible to get out of a spin in a Mig-15.

Try it and see.

Its actually fairly easy to recover from a flat spin in a twin-engine aircraft. Just apply thrust on the engine opposite to the spin side and idle the other one. Full rudder should be applied as well.

I was able to recover from induced flat spins in the Su-27 and F-15.
