The Yakovlev Yak-130 (NATO reporting name: Mitten) is a subsonic two-seat
advanced jet trainer/light attack aircraft or lead-in fighter trainer
developed by Yakovlev. Development of the plane began in 1991, and the
maiden flight was conducted on 26 April 1996. In 2005, it won a Russian
government tender for training aircraft, and in 2009 the first planes
entered service with the Russian Air Force. As an advanced training

MIKOYAN MIG 29M OVT Vectored Thrust Demo - Farnborough (airshowvision)
Quite simply one of the most legendary fast jet demos of recent years,
showing the possibilities available to a pilot when he has 360 degrees of
Vectored Thrust to play with.
This aircraft is one of the Mig29M prototypes, retro fitted with 360 degree
thrust vectoring nozzles, enabling it to turn within its' own axis and
produce the amazing manouvers you see here, including the backflip, the
super cobra, and the flat spin. All under total control.
Also, during the final part of the display, we see the pilot stop playing
around and open the jet up and really let rip with a very high speed
rolling loop, for me possibly the highlight of the display.
This aircraft is still in this colour scheme, but sadly, like most Russian
fighters rarely ventures outside Russia, but it came over in 2006 to do
Farnborough and the Paris air show. Here is its' moment of magic . . .

F16 Crash in Oshkosh 2012
F16 crash-landing in Oshkosh 2011 EAA AirVenture. Sorry about the head and
the camera moving.

Official cause of the crash: cockpit fogging, pilot lost visibility. The
aircraft's ventilation system failed and condensation formed during the
final approach (that can happen rapidly during a jet descent). It also
explains why the airbrakes were not deployed: he was distracted just
getting the plane down.
BOEING F18F US NAVY SUPER HORNET DEMONSTRATION - FARNBOROUGH AIRSHOW (airshowvision)
Airshowvision present one of the Worlds' most awesome and versatile
warplanes - the US Navy F18 Super Hornet.
In this video the aircraft is carrying 6 air to air missiles on it's
underwing racks, as well as the usual sidewinder missiles on the end of
each wing, giving the aircraft a high all up weight. Despite this
disadvantage, the Hornet still delivers a high G display.
Included in the demo is the spectacular push-pull manouvers, the slow pass,
a square loop, and a tough landing.
The Awesome "CAD WEST" Low Flying Jet Site In Wales "Mach Loop".
This was my first visit to the "Mach Loop" Whilst on holiday in north Wales
in 2009. It was awesome, I was very lucky, on my first day there were over
30 passes, and on my second day loads of Typhoons and a F15 with
afterburner. The photographers up there were a very friendly bunch, and I
would like to thank all of them, for the tips and advice they gave me about
the Mach Loop. Cad West was definatly my favorite site on the loop.
