Your Sunday Morning Jet Noise

Russian demo at the Paris Air Show:

Incroiable! I vote this show most likely to end with an unplanned ejections, but it is spectacular. The hovering at 0:39 !

The wingtip smoke really highlights the high angle of attack stuff, better than the usual injection into the engine exhaust.

Good warmup for airshow watching this week @ Oshkosh.

Delta Canard? The planes early on don't look Russian at all.
Looks like Chinese J-10/J-10B to me.

What a dogfighter! The JSF doesn't stand a chance!

I think that in the first 1-1/2 minutes the planes are Saab Gripens showing off their vectored thrust.

The first ones are RC planes. They have solid black canopies, and the landing gear is not robust enough. Plus, they move far too quickly for their scale. Even supermaneuverable aircraft like the SU-47 Berkut can't maneuver that fast.

Yeap, RC planes. It's especially obvious at the 1:26 mark when one comes in for landing.
