A great article on the Su-27s flown by the Ukrainians and some real life input from the pilots on the aircraft.  Enlightening.

Close encounter

Looks like a couple of Russian pilots got a little frisky.  Next time the USAF ought to have a couple of F-22s in trail.  Also, the camo on those Su-27s looks a little grayer than usual, but that could just be the film.

Looks like the Russians and Chinese aren’t the only ones flexing a little muscle.  Everybody stay frosty.

Zvezda is releasing an Su-27UB.  Will  be nice to have a modern release of this aircraft.

The more this stuff occurs, the more chance someone is going to get hurt. And who knows where that will lead.

Story here.  The question is, is he doing it because he knows he’s weak?  Is he bluffing?

And, as I said before.

I think this photo came from the website English Russia.  It shows the tails of MiG-31 and Su-27s with the current Russian star marking.  Note the red border and the blue inner border.

Here is a photo of the Su-35, the newest iteration of Su-27 Flanker.  The photo is from a while ago, but I’m just getting around to posting it.  I love the blues used in the camo scheme.

I like the scheme on this Uzbek Su-27.  It is similar to the scheme on the MiG-29 I posted a few days ago.
