Check out this video of a Rhino doing a high alpha pass. Pretty much what you do is pull the nose up, and pour on just enough power to keep you from losing altitude. It is not really flying... cool to see IRL. It is pretty standard to see aerobatic team solos to do it at air shows.

Near the end of your video, you can see the MIG-29 is doing a mild high alpha to keep pace with the AN-32, then he uses his afterburners a bit to get out of the high AoA.

The An-32's cruise speed is almost 300mph... I don't know of any jets that would have a problem maintaing that speed.

And that speed is probably double the MiG's stall speed.

That is truly awesome...of course, in large part due to a nifty headwind.

However, it is most definitely really flying. Just utilizing a different source of lift  Smile



"Two and a Half Men" was filmed in front of a live ostrich.
