I don't like to lift photos from other people's blogs, I'd rather use my own, but a friend sent me this link, which had another link embedded in it, etcetera etcetera...you know the drill.

Anyway, pretty incredible shots, mainly because we "Westerners" didn't/don't get to see this stuff too often. The Soviets had three flight demonstration teams, two of which flew the contemporary fighters, the Mikoyen MiG 29 flown by the "Swifts" and the Sukhoi Su 27 flown by the "Russian Knights"....

Here are the "Swifts"

The "Russian Knights"

And here they are together, which is cool because you get an idea of the size difference between the two jets, as well as some of the similarities of design.

I guess they don't have a "Navy" flight demonstration team the way we do. It would be cool to see the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds fly together though.

Here's the link;
