Another set of wonderful “Strizhi” team photos for you to enjoy.
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
French Patrol are like this Russian airplane crew, nice skills must be very loud !
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?
>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 😛
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
What are these Sukhois?? Su-35??
