Paris Air Show 2013 - Su-35 vertical take-off + Air Show (HD)
The Sukhoi SU-35 made a stunning performance at the Paris Air Show 2013.
There were a few maneuvers I have never seen before and sometimes this
skilled pilot made it very difficult for me to follow the plane. Usually I
am only filming civilian planes but the performance of this SU-35 was so
impressive so that I had to upload the footage.
Thanks for watching, I hope you liked it and please don` t forget to rate.
