Great panning shot of this MIG-29. From this angle you get the impression that russian display pilots have a certain edge, a flair about them if you like. Very daring indeed. That's why I think they are the best display pilots in the world

It is a wonderful shot, split second timing, I would imagine the chance of getting a photo like that does not come very often.
Being a photographer myself I can appreciate the skill to capture the image, Brilliant

One Russian in a cockpit shows the world (again)how it's easy to hold their breath, continuing their long tradition of "No fear" flying, in war, or in airshow, while another Russian helping us to understand it through his photos. Just a one more proof of geniality....

The Best combat pilots in the world are from the Israeli Air Force, and the Most Outrageous airshow pilots in the world are Russian. That's a compliment! Thank You, Dmitriy, for sharing a "Thunderous" picture of one of the world's premier fighter plane.

A beautiful picture & an aircraft w/clean lines. This pilot has to have ice in his blood & nerves of steel to maneuver this close to the ground.
