"Yes that's very cool" ...I watched it three times! ...He appears to be not actually flying a lot of the time, ...just quite literally hanging in there on thrust.

They won't ask newbies to fly aerobatic demonstrations, and if you look closely, you'll notice they often fly at near stall speed or actually let the aircraft stall. The pink smoke is a good indicator for that.

I saw the Su-30 demo at Aero India in February - it was simply jaw-dropping!
