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:
Thrust SSC -over the sound barrier !
October 1997, UK managed to break the sound barrier on earth, using the
fantastic Thrust SSC vehicule. I made this video because there was too few
videos about this remarkable event on the web. (music credits: Spa 24 hours

a jet dragster crash after he has completed his run down the 1/4 mile
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.
