Flying Strizhi by highly-maneuverable MiG-29. Part II. Hope you haven’t missed Part I.
What are these Sukhois?? Su-35??
Strizhi don’t fly Sukhoi’s. Those are Mikoyan fighters, probably the new Mig-29SMT’s.
Yeah you’re right, however author mixed photos of two different groups – Strizhi and Vityazi. It’s easy though, as they often perform in various shows together.
Nope. They’re Su-25…..Su-35 is almost like Su-30 but without canard….
The Su-25 seems to be a captured one from Georgia as it has the insignia covered…
rivets and smoke…but they outnumber them raptors 5 to 1 ….job done
Photos are a mix of Strizhi’s and Russian Vityazi’s photos.
Strizhi fly MiG-29s only, Vityazi – Su-27. Very last photo is MiG-29 of Strizhi (with a bird sign on a body), while the second from last is Vityazi’s Su-27 (as can be seen from different emblem).
This photo (http://media.englishrussia.com/112012/strizhi5/strizhi007-86.jpg) shows Strizhi (one can see a blue bird painted on the bottom of each airplane). But this photo shows Vityazi: http://media.englishrussia.com/112012/strizhi5/strizhi007-75.jpg (can be distinguished by different painting).
