Got no time for Venezuelan politics but deary me - those are absolutely drop dead stunning looking planes.

Someone should make a hyper accurate, super realistic die-cast metal 1:32 scale Flanker - I'd buy one at £200+. Would just be absolutely stunning on my desk. You can keep your Eagles, Typhoons, Gripens and even your Rafales - the Su30 is the best looking fighter plane there is. Full stop. Stunning.
What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

I would think so. Is it possible that Russian and NATO refueling probes are in fact compatible? I believe the Indian Air Force uses its IL-78 tankers to refuel Mirages.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

Absolutely I love the Flanker. The F-15 is a lovely aircraft but the Flanker oozes menace........

Another drooling idiot who thinks the actual video needed a minute long intro, that a scene must not - be no means! - last longer than 2 seconds, moving text was cool - particularly when using bold bi-color letters, and that effects make a video.

Nope, they are not but the Venezuelan airforce modified the baskets of the drogue system to allow the refueling. Since the other airplanes in the inventory that needed the drogue system are no longer in service, it was only practical to adapt them.
