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.
