Nice capture - F-16, F-15's and a Su-30 in the same frame! Visit again IAF and bring the LCA too!

This Su-30 will look better if the nose has the same color with the rest of the aircraft, anyway, 5 stars

Amazing sight! And now I read of a civilian Su-27UB and MiG-29UB in America -- something unheard of in Soviet times

#20 Squadron sure knows how to present their machines. Are the Americans VIFF'ing "Tumanskys" when this happened.

Nice AoA view for the Man next to the Left. Molon Labe!.

That's what happens when Russians sell aircraft to India: they end up as a pracitce aid to the US military :)) No doubt this picture will make many Russian generals unhappy.

In "1" word Sagar - a wonderfully exquisite photo! And definitely worth more than 5 Stars...

Nice!!! The backseater looks like say "I get them on the screen" and the pilot reply "I see them and i'm going for them!"
I'm guessing what US pilots thinking?: "here come the soviets... i mean the Indians..."
