It's not the Photoshop, it's my fair picture. The most successful my photo of the series of a photos those seconds ! It was the celebratory airshow, devoted to the 75 anniversary of military-transport aviation of Russia.

Echoes of Shakespeare - "the beast with two backs"! But what's a display aircraft doing with such faded paint? Doesn't detract from the photo though - excellent capture.

How come the belly-up bird looks closer to the camera than the other one?! Isn't it just 3/4 of the normal size? ;o) Unbelievable!

That's amazing. I think the planes are not exactly one under the other. The one on the bottom looks as if it's to the left of the one on the top. It's still amazing though. Nice job!

Perhaps it's hard to believe but our display teams are in the very sad state now. "Rous" comes to an end - they have only pair of L-39s able to fly. Russian Knights now have no enough planes with appropriate colour scheme and only way to fly even small formation is to take usual Su-27s from combat units... but TBO comes to an end on many planes and chances to make appropriate overhaul looks negligible

It doesn't looks impossible to say goodby for Rissian Knights in the near future :(

Hey, pal! You are wrong: Russian Knights are going to be equipped with Su-35. I saw Su-35's photo with Russian Knights paint scheme in the "Aviation and cosmonautics" ¹ 8.2006

Good timing. shows the poor condition of the paintwork very clearly. although this looks like an impossible situation it is actually quite straight forward. the lead aircraft flies inverted and the wingman just formates tightly on him. wasier said than done though!

Where is the wing of the ruskye vityaz?
the grulla is normal, but the ruskye vityaz, his wing was cuted, to do that, they should be "gluered", and the noses will be on a diferent positions!
