remarkable this really is. Any way you slice it, pretty impressive. Great
camera work. This remarkable aircraft and its pilot demonstrate what I
thought impossible for a high speed jet fighter. In the SU-30MK, Russian
aviation has surpassed that of the US and its NATO allies. This truly impressive
fighter can stall from high speed flight to stop in less than a second.
It can fall back on its tail, without compressor stall, and go into a flat
spin and recover in less than a minute. There is no aircraft in any country's
inventory that could stand up to it in a dog fight."
