  3. awesome! that is a truly “grandiose” airshow!

    Certainly not like the aviation “feria” of the local aeroclub that was held in paris, so called lebourget “airshow”

  4. American and Russian fighters are the most beautiful machines, and the best around. The Su-Ta50 looks very cool in its introduction. The B-52 and the Airbus are impressive. Even the French Rafale is nice. I didn’t see the Eurofighter, though. Amazing show and pics.

  5. The guy who painted Russian supersonic bombers should suffer long-lasting diarrhea. How is that possible such beautiful peace of Hi-Tech multimillion dollars machinery painted so poorly? I mean, common! Seriously….

  6. Thank you for these amazing photos! The photographer must have used super objectives as well as some amazing skills. It’l do for a fine desktop wallpaper.
