I am not sure how many of you are aware of the greatest Russian air show (salon) so I thought I will post few links. Maybe someone will post pictures taken personally by themselves on the spot. I wish one day I can visit this show ...


USAF is present as well. According to one of the article the Russians are quite impressed to see good looking and smiling Americans with whom they can brush their english http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


Can you guess what this plane is?


Speaking of beauties, bears, and "aircrafts taken out of mothballs and flown again":


Now this is a fighter I would like to hear roaring into the sky:


And the website of the organizer of the show:

Wow, great shots. Ruskie women are so hot....I used to get almost as many good shots of chix as I did planes at airshows. Gotta have something to do between acts.

And did I see a Tu-144? A few yrs ago they pretended those didn't exist. Neat plane.

The US news media is going nuts over the fact that they can afford to fly again and are having "the biggest military airshow since the end of the cold war". They of course failed to mention that our guys were there to. Only the US news media could make an airshow out to be ominous.

What was the deal with the 2 seat I-15 bending its wing a bit?
