January 3, 2008 – A Special Treat: Russian and US Fighter Jet Videos!

Politics aside, one of my other obsessions in life is fighter jets — my favourite being the American F-22 Raptor.  It’s maneuverability is amazing.  My other favourite is Russia’s Su-30, also used by the Indian Air Force (further proving my oft-mentioned point that the US should have chosen India rather than Pakistan as its ally in that region — but that’s a post for another day).

 As a treat, I thought I’d post a video of each of these amazing defenders of freedom.  I think you’ll find that the Russians are a bit more, shall we say “open”, when it comes to showing off their toys.

If you know of any other great fighter jet footage, please feel free to link it in the comment section!

    Pugachev’s Cobra is one of the trickiest maneuvers a plane can do. 🙂
