What a fantastic photo, an excellent shot. The skill ans bravery of the pilots, extremely high. My congratulations to them both. Its nice to see some photoes of Russian planes instead of the usual overabundance of Yank planes etc. JOB

Imagine the airflow around each fuselage as both aircraft have to fly extremely close to each others slipstream/vortices! Amazing display of faith in the laws of physics.

On August 16, 2009 one of the pilots (Guards Colonel) from this group (called Russkiye Vityazi, Русские Витязи) Igor Tkachenko died on a tragic plain crash in dress rehearsal for MAKS (International Air Show, Zjukovsky). Rest in pease, Igor.

I must first complement the expertise that this took for the pilots to just get into this position, hold it and not wreck. Then the quality and composition of the photo itself is quite amazing!

At first I said to my self , "the Russians invented a new air craft" But then when I realized that it was a formation I was convinced that I can die now because I had seen the best pilots of the whole world.I repeat I saw a new aircraft.
