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.

Saab History Documentary
In tribute to Saab, here is an old documentary about the history of the

not own the rights to this video. This is for fair use and analysis.
