The “Russkie Vityazi (Russian Knights)” aerobatics crew is the most famous crew in Russia. Participated in hundreds of different airshows nationally and abroad. Now they finally got brand new SU-30SM jets and were training to take part in a Malaysian airshow that will take place March 21-25 this year. Let’s see their new birds.
This would be their first public airshow on the new jets.
Since Russian Knights were formed in 1991 they were flying older SU-27s. And now they finally got some brand new SU-30SMs. It’s like they got a new iPhone twenty years later they used Nokia phone. You can feel what they feel probably imagining this.
Taking off in pairs.
Russian photographer Marina went there to make photos but there were clouds in the skies so she couldn’t catch their perfomance – they were performing above the clouds in blue skies and were not visible from the ground.
However when they landed and took off it was pretty impressive too.

And those are their rivals – another aerobatic Russian crew called “Strizhi (Swifts)”
Here is the “Swifts” jet.
Hope you liked those photos! Thanks goes to Marina, her website is below:
