Note: it's the final part of the KOLOKOL - "Su" moves vertically then slow engine, stops and, after few seconds falls backward down until the photo was taken at the photo's moment.
When i saw it in 2007 first time a really thought the huge trouble was happened...

Wow amazing composition, no missile is going to ignore that IR signature!

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 17, 2013:
At first it looked like it got shot down.

A visitor from - posted Mon September 3, 2012:
He's adding a little razzle-dazzle and "flare" to his routine.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue April 10, 2012:
What a beautiful sight to see the flares coming out in this slow dive and to see the smoke clinging to the wings.

A visitor from Norway posted Tue July 12, 2011:
Superb Photo

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Fri February 5, 2010:

A visitor from Estonia posted Fri August 21, 2009:

Its the best fotograph of the web

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Wed April 29, 2009:
Awesome trick! Love it

A visitor from Denmark posted Tue January 13, 2009:
One interesting detail caught my eye - it seems that the Russinas started to paint a fake canopy on the underside of the fuselage, like Canadians used to do on the F18s... great shot anyway

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon December 29, 2008:
One could be forgiven for thinking this plane is having a tiny problem. Great shot.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 7, 2008:
I love when the russians pull these tricks!

A visitor from Austria posted Fri September 5, 2008:
Great, great, great!

A visitor from Poland posted Sat August 30, 2008:
It's amazing!!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 12, 2008:
By my thoughts, what makes this picture great are the flares not being imbedded in the smoke but rather, are visible outside the smoke. If the flares were imbedded in the smoke, you wouldn't see much else other than the smoke.

A lot of 'targets' for the incoming AA rockets . . .

A visitor from Austria posted Thu July 24, 2008:
The details on one hand and on the other hand the extraordinary motive
