Russian VITYAZI Air Jet Aerobatics Squad at Training

Posted on January 13, 2016 by tim

The Russian “VITYAZI” group or ‘The Russian Knights’ is an aerobatic demonstration team of the Russian Air Force. It is considered to be the most elite squad of aerobatic pilots in Russia. Most of the major state events include their demo flights. Like, for example, if some city has a 300 year anniversary then this squad might be invited to give an aerobatic demonstration to the people of the city during the anniversary events. Besides this, it represents Russia in international aerobatic contests and airshows. For example, if you want to see them live – they would be performing in ten days (Jan 23, 2016) at the Bahrain Air Show. And here are some photos of this squad during training, thanks to Said A. the photographer. Let’s see:

The planes they use are SU-27s.

    Is there any logical reason as to why these 52 images couldn’t be posted on one single page? Having to click through a couple of images at a time is extremely annoying. I just can’t be bothered. Sorry.
