Out of all the Su-30 shots that I have seen, I think that this is the best of the lot. The plane is not frequently photographed, but so far this is the best shot of the Su-30 that I have ever seen.
I only wish that the exhausts were not covered.

This is the pride of the Indian Air Force. This Flanker is from the newly inducted No. 20 "Lightning" Squadron of the IAF. As you can see, the thrust vectored nozzles are in a relaxed position. The Lightning squadron took part in the air exercise versus the Singapore Air force in which the Su-30's practically suffered no losses versus the F-16.
