That is unbelievable!
What is essentially a 1970s design with thrust vectoring nozzles slapped on.
It doesn´t even need the canard of previuos generations anymore.
Russian aircraft design at its finest!

Incredible aircraft.

But I'll bet there's ACM instructors out there right now saying, "... and boys, when the Su-35 starts pirouetting, you give him half a minute to finish showing off, then drill his brains with anything you want, because he's got no energy left"

The F-22 demo guys must be depressed. Insane maneuvers.

Why would they be? The F-22 cannot do that. Why would you get depressed about something your aircraft can't do?

How about the fact that they are flying F-22's. Would that make you depressed? Stop trying to start a pissing fight.

Take 'er easy chief, it's just a light-hearted way of complimenting to the SU-35 and its pilot.

Or, run him out for a few more minutes before he's out of gas, and besides, he can't shoot you back, he can only do this without any weapons or even cannon ammo.

Right, because the RuAF flies combat missions with no ammo and a 50% fuel load...... :sarcastic:

Plus, here's an armed up (2 x R-73, 2 x R-27, 2 x Kh-31) Su-34 putting on a display at MAKS 2015 that makes even the 'airshow-spec' F-35 Paris demo look like garbage.

Sometimes I just laugh at myself for the things that catch my attention. At :04 seconds of video there's a gentleman in the crowd (near the camera) in a full business suit, on what looks like a nice day, with everyone else in casual clothes. Makes me wonder what he's doing there? Checking out the show? On a break from the office? who knows!
