has #1 fighter plane in the world... SU-30- Vectored Thrust with Canards. As
you watch this airplane, look at the canards moving along side of, and just
below the canopy rail. The "canards" are the small wings forward of the main
wings. The smoke and contrails provide a sense of the actual flight path,
sometimes in reverse direction.
This video is of an in-flight demonstration flown by the Russian's-30MK
fighter aircraft. You will not believe what you are about to see.
The fighter can stall from high speed,
stopping forward motion in seconds.
(full stall). Then it demonstrates an ability to descend tail first without
causing a compressor stall. It can also recover from a flat spin in less
than a minute.
These maneuver capabilities don't exist in any other aircraft in the world
today.. Take a look at the video with the sound up. This aircraft is of
concern to U.S. and NATO planners. We don't know
which nations will soon be flying the SU-30MK, hopefully China isn't one of
