Most Difficult Aerobatic Maneuvers #aerobatics #su27 : The Russian Air Force has developed tactics for using Flankers to fight stealth fighters that concentrate on taking advantage of the plane’s remarkable maneuverability to survive the first missile attack. Moreover, the Flanker is heavy and fast enough to hit hard and then retreat to safety before any NATO fighters can catch it.
https://flic.kr/p/Xhm5y9 | Ukranian Air Force Sukhoi 27 Flanker | The Ukranian SU 27 Flanker was certainly a star of the RIAT 2017 air show and put on a couple of absolutely fantastic displays which really showed the aircrafts agility and capabilities in the air. A fantastic colour scheme matched the show for me. They finished the weekend on a high as they departed as a pair from Fairford. Hopefully see them again as they would be most welcome I'm sure.
