I'm not sure if you guys are saying it right as far as the angle of the nozzles as shown in the picture. I think the one guy is right that they are only in this position because they are drooping at rest. The reason they are capable of pointing in like this is to go in OPPOSITE directions to help the ailerons and stabilators to roll the aircraft. To increase roll rate. One up, one down....or whatever direction the pilot is trying to go. I doubt they would both be pointed this way in flight. Not for very long I suppose. Maybe when the pilot is trying to erase his previous stick movement. Lets leave it to the demo pilot to show us. All the better. By the way, this is the most unique shot of the SU-30 I've ever seen.

To visitor from US: it's nozzels especially designed to be diagonal. It helps in tight turn.

Fabulous picture!
Is it just me, or does it have a face? Nozzles for eyes (which look remarkably like E.T!), nose undercarriage for its nose, and the two orange supports finishing off the mouth!

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 10, 2008:
Wonder what it feels like if it's turned on standing there?

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 5, 2008:
The nozzles are not designed to be diagonal, they are simply at rest and drooping.
Killer shot,tho.

Sukhoi are the greatest fighter jet ever and i admit,it is my favourite among of all!!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 1, 2008:
I love the way the nozzles are design to vector slighlty diagonal.
