Irkut Yak-130 Farnborough 2012 (Tuesday)
The Yak-130 flight demonstration at the 2012 Farnborough International
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yak-130
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
aircraft, the Yak-130 is able to replicate the characteristics of several
4+ generation fighters as well as the fifth-generation Sukhoi T-50. It can
also perform light-attack and reconnaissance duties, carrying a combat load
of 3,000 kg.

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 . . .
Please note the new Airshowvision facebook page is now up and running at:
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.

Swedens Saab Gripen NG JAS 39 fighter jet SHOOTS DOWN a Russian Sukhoi Su-35 in Marketing video
The Saab JAS 39 Gripen (griffin) is a lightweight single-engine multirole
fighter manufactured by the Swedish aerospace company Saab. It was designed
to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen in the Swedish Air Force
(Flygvapnet). The Gripen has a delta wing and canard configuration with
relaxed stability design and fly-by-wire technology. It is powered by the
Volvo-Flygmotor RM12 engine, a derivative of the General Electric F404, and
has a top speed of Mach 2. Later aircraft are equipped for in-flight
refuelling; most of the export aircraft have been designed to be compatible
with NATO interoperability standards.
In 1979, the Swedish government began development studies for an aircraft
capable of fighter, attack and reconnaissance missions to replace the Saab
35 Draken and 37 Viggen. A new design from Saab was selected and developed
as the JAS 39, first flying in 1988. Following two crashes during flight
development and subsequent alterations to the aircraft's flight control
software, the Gripen entered service with the Swedish Air Force in 1997.
Upgraded variants, featuring more advanced avionics and adaptions for
longer mission times, began entering service from 2003 onwards.
The Swedish Air Force (Swedish: Flygvapnet) is the air force branch of the
Swedish Armed Forces.
The Swedish Air Force was created on July 1, 1926 when the aircraft units
of the Army and Navy were merged. Because of the escalating international
tension during the 1930s the Air Force was reorganized and expanded from
four to seven squadrons. When World War II broke out in 1939 further
expansion was initiated and this substantial expansion was not finished
until the end of the war. Although Sweden never entered the war, a large
air force was considered necessary to ward off the threat of invasion and
to resist pressure through military threats from the great powers. By 1945
the Swedish Air Force had over 800 combat-ready aircraft, including 15

southern half of the country. About 85% of the population live in urban
