    (TW: This was sent to me by an Old retired American USAF fighter pilot.These are his comments.)

    Any way you slice it, this is pretty impressive. Great camera work.
    This remarkable aircraft and it's pilot demonstrates what I thought
    impossible for a high speed jet fighter. In the SU-30MK, Russian
    aviation has surpassed that of the US and it's allies. This truly
    impressive fighter can stall from high speed flight to stop in less than
    a second.

    It can fall back on it's tail, without compressor stall, and
    go into a flat spin and recover in less than a minute. There is no
    aircraft in any country's inventory that could stand up to it in dog
  2. That is one impressive piece of hardware!

    S**T - won't play on my laptop. Talk us through, Flash! 8)

  4. Big fast Ruskie cab goes in up quickly, stops, turns round, comes back down, spins a few times, goes backwards whilst going forwards then stops again (lots of nice smoke), goes up, down, round and round, stops, spins, zooms off, turns round and round, goes down then up, stops does a few twizzles then goes up again (lots and lots of smoke), zooms one way then the other, pulls up, stops and turns around a bit then comes down (not so much smoke this time), whizzes along a bit then pops his gear down, lands, stops and what is remarkable for a Ruskie cab doing a display is he doesnt eject half way through!

  5. Surely the going backward when facing forward bit isn't exactly fair - haven't the Ruskies heard of Cricket? Cos that definitely isn't cricket...

    Oooh - nice narrative, got quite damp there.
    Flash - Job for you as Red Arrows commentator, then! Contact :lol:
  7. Dont talk to me about the Red fucking Arrows......................... :x
  8. The thing to remember is this isn't a cobat jet - that is it's like the difference between a rally car and the road going version, it's engineered for these displays to show off. The Actual fighter would have differet characteristics.
  9. Move over Joint Strike Fighter!!

    Why not? They're a tiresome bunch of posing manual-aerobatics-in-the-bar people as well. 8)
  11. If it did those sort of manoevers in a dogfight, then a Sopwith Camel could probably shoot it down. Strictly for airshows.
  12. Nice display. Probably a pilot from the Knights or Swallows. And the plane certainly looks good to. I didn't think that Russian aircraft could pull those moves. Obviously i've proved myself wrong.
  13. No, Sukhoi have proved you wrong.

  14. Nowt special, I had a 1983 Audi 100 that could do that 16 years ago
  15. Thank fcuk I didn't buy it!

    (It did smell like a tramps plimsol too)
