    This is a preparation for celebrating the 100th anniversary of Russian aviation. Invited to a lot of aerobatic teams from different countries. It will be great

    the picture with the small tank with the fill cap and tubes running up to the pilot,would be a great place to have vodka for the pilot then they can wizz into the engine for a bit of afterburner fun.

    It seems the exhaust of the jets in Russia burn much darker than in the US. Are they using a different fuel grade?

    Some engines are smokier than others, and the Klimov 33 mounted on MiG 29’s is one of them. The American F-4 Phantom, for example, left a smoke trail that could be seen miles away.

    And every single one of them would come crashing down into the nearest crowd of people if it could :P

    Would love to see them over here in the States (US), it must be a sight to see and hear. I have written to the Portland Rose Festival Airshow to see about getting “teams” like Strizhi here. O
