Great photo! Although, at first glimpse, I thought it was another SU-27 crash.

The smoke hangs like an ominous portant, while the red flares sizzle like demonic eyes waiting for their moment - great image.

Well, were I a heat seeking missile seeking the Sukhoi I'd be completely bamboozled. Not that I'm not bamboozled as it is.

At first glance i thought the pilot had ejected. But then I saw the whole picture and as stated before, this is aviation art! Good work and keep it up!

Talk about "composition"! Oleg, how in the world did you ever manage to get your camera in vertical format and still get all of this in the frame? Amazing!
As a matter of fact.....all of your photographs are amazing! (That shot of An-225 in the huge thunderstorm for instance!) And now this.....Amazing!

It's not Cobra, this is "Kolokol" ("Bell") anti-missle attack maneuver: the plane hangs for a few seconds at highest point and begins to fall nozzles down. After turn over the Su begins a normal flight as we see at this amazing photo. But looks like crash, in case there was a couple of Su.
