MiG 29K LANDING on Admiral Gorshkov Aircraft Carrier RARE VIDEO
The Mikoyan MiG-29 (Russian: Микоян МиГ-29; NATO reporting name:
"Fulcrum") is a fourth-generation jet fighter aircraft designed in the
Soviet Union. Developed by the Mikoyan design bureau as an air superiority
fighter during the 1970s, the MiG-29, along with the larger Sukhoi Su-27,
was developed to counter new American fighters such as the McDonnell
Douglas F-15 Eagle, and the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon. The
MiG-29 entered service with the Soviet Air Force in 1983.
While originally oriented towards combat against any enemy aircraft, many
MiG-29s have been furnished as multirole fighters capable of performing a
number of different operations, and are commonly outfitted to use a range
of air-to-surface armaments and precision munitions. The MiG-29 has been
manufactured in several major variants, including the multirole Mikoyan
MiG-29M and the navalised Mikoyan MiG-29K; the most advanced member of the
family to date is the Mikoyan MiG-35. Later models frequently feature
improved engines, glass cockpits with HOTAS-compatible flight controls,
modern radar and IRST sensors, considerably increased fuel capacity; some
aircraft have also been equipped for aerial refuelling.
The Russian Air Force (Russian: Военно-воздушные cилы
России, tr. Voyenno-Vozdushnye Sily Rossii) is the aerial warfare
service branch of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. It is
currently under the command of Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev. The
Russian Navy has its own air arm, the Russian Naval Aviation, which is the
former Soviet Aviatsiya Voyenno Morskogo Flota ("Naval Aviation"), or
The Air Force was formed from parts of the former Soviet Air Forces after
the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991--92. Boris Yeltsin's creation
of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation on 7 May 1992, can be
taken as a convenient formation date for the new Air Force. Since that
time, the Air Force has suffered severe setbacks due to lack of resources,
and has constantly shrunk in size. Since Vladimir Putin became President of
the Russian Federation however, much more money has been allocated to the
Armed Forces as a whole.
Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr.
Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the
Russian Federation (Russian: Российская Федерация,
tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə
fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia.
It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects.
From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway,
Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad
Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China,
Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea
of Okhotsk and the U.S. state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At
17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest
country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's
inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation
with 143 million people as of 2012. Extending across the entirety of
northern Asia and much of Eastern Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and
incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms.
An aircraft carrier is a warship with a full-length flight deck and
facilities for carrying, arming, deploying and recovering aircraft, acting
as a seagoing airbase. Aircraft carriers allow a naval force to project
airpower worldwide without having to depend on local bases for staging
aircraft operations. They have evolved from converted cruisers to
nuclear-powered warships that can carry many fighters, strike aircraft,
helicopters and other types. There is no single definition of an "aircraft
carrier". Within modern navies, many variants are in use. These are
sometimes classed as sub-types of aircraft carrier and sometimes as
distinct types of aviation-capable ship. They may be classified
according to the type of aircraft they carry and the operational emphasis
they are assigned.
An aircraft carriers is typically the capital ship of a fleet, as it allows
a naval force to project airpower worldwide without having to depend on
local bases for staging aircraft operations, and is extremely expensive to
build and important to protect. Admiral Sir Mark Stanhope, former head of
the Royal Navy, has said that "To put it simply, countries that aspire to
strategic international influence have aircraft carriers".
Today's aircraft carriers are so expensive that nations which operate them
risk significant political, economic, and military ramifications if a
carrier was lost, or even used in conflict. Lacking the firepower of other
warships, carriers by themselves are considered vulnerable to attack by
other ships, aircraft, submarines, or missiles.

F4 Phantom and MIG 17 Take-off with Afterburners
notice the added oomph once the mig 17 after burner kicks in. the video
(taken with panasonic lumix dmc tz3) doesn't really convey the volume of
the sound, but it's not too bad if you turn up the volume and have a
sub-woofer attached. this was also taken at 2009's willow run thunder over
michigan. it's rare to be so close to the action at an airshow and to shoot
a full frame high res video of this kind of action. it's pretty high
quality but i still wish i had brought a tripod.
