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.

Eurofighter Typhoon Pride of the NATO alliance
The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine, canard-delta wing, multirole
fighter. The Typhoon was designed and is manufactured by a consortium
of three companies; EADS, Alenia Aeronautica and BAE Systems, who conduct
the majority of affairs dealing with the project through a joint holding
company, Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH, which was formed in 1986. The
project is managed by the NATO Eurofighter and Tornado Management Agency,
which also acts as the prime customer.
Development of the aircraft effectively began in 1983 with the Future
European Fighter Aircraft programme, a multinational collaborative effort
between Germany, France, UK, Italy and Spain. Due to disagreements over
design authority and operational requirements, France left the consortium
to independently develop the Dassault Rafale instead. A technology
demonstration aircraft, the British Aerospace EAP, first took flight on 6
August 1986; the first prototype of the finalised Eurofighter made its
first flight on 27 March 1994. The name of the aircraft, Typhoon, was
formally adopted in September 1998; the first production contracts were
signed that same year.
Political issues in the partner nations significantly protracted the
Typhoon's development; the sudden end of the Cold War reduced European
demand for fighter aircraft, and there was debate over the cost and work
share of the Eurofighter. The Typhoon was introduced into operational
service in 2003. Currently, the type has entered service with the Austrian
Air Force, the Italian Air Force, the German Air Force, the Royal Air
Force, the Spanish Air Force, and the Royal Saudi Air Force. The Royal Air
Force of Oman has also been confirmed as an export customer, bringing the
procurement total to 571 aircraft as of 2013.
Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH (English: Eurofighter Fighter aircraft GmbH)
is a multinational company that co-ordinates the design, production and
upgrade of the Eurofighter Typhoon, this includes incorporating the jet
engines designed and manufactured by EuroJet turbo GmbH.
Founded in 1986, it has its head office in Hallbergmoos,
Bavaria, Germany. The company is owned by the major aerospace companies
of the four Eurofighter partner nations:

RAF TYPHOON ROCKS FARNBOROUGH 2012 (airshowvision)
Airshowvision present the jet that absolutely ruled Farnborough 2012 with
its' amazing performance. Flown by Squadron Leader Scott Loughran the
Royal Air Force display pilot for 2012 he blew all the competition away
with this amazind demo in very poor weather conditions, hence yet another
Typhoon video on my site!
Watch the aircraft perform its' show in a very tight space, hardly ever
going beyond the airfield boundary, and ripping the moisture from the air
as it does so.
Although the full height display is more interesting, this is a great
alternative to watch when the cloud base is so low.

The Farnborough compilation video is now on line at AIRSHOWVISION channel,
and action from the Sunderland (International??) Airshow will be coming
RAF CONINGSBY TYPHOON ACTION - JUNE 21st 2013 (airshowvision)
Here is a relatively loose edit of some RAF Typhoon action from RAF
Coningsby in Lincolnshire on 21st June 2013.
I had hoped to include the 2013 Typhoon display in this film, but the lousy
British Weather put paid to that, and much more of the action too, but
there is still much to see on this video despite the bad weather.
All the Coningsby Typhoon squadrons are featured here, including the newly
painted 41 squadron Typhoon jets - there is also a couple of 6 squadron
The opening section is the preparation and starting up of the display jet
as it sets off for Blackpool, then some early morning action as a mass take
off takes place . . . and the best action comes to those who make it to the
very end of the video!
This aircraft will be performing at the south bay, Scarborough North Yorks
on Saturday at 1pm followed by the Red Arrows at 2pm - if you live in
Yorkshire don't miss this amazing opportunity!!!
WORLDS FASTEST propellar driven AIRCRAFT Russian Tu 95MC Nuclear Bomber
Russian Aircraft The Tupolev Tu-95 (Russian: Туполев Ту--95; NATO
reporting name: Bear) is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile
platform. First flown in 1952, the Tu-95 entered service with the Soviet
Union in 1956 and is expected to serve the Russian Air Force until at least
2040. A naval development of the bomber is designated Tu-142.
The aircraft has four Kuznetsov NK-12 engines, developed by the Kuznetsov
Design Bureau with participation of Ferdinand Brandner and other captured
German engineers, each driving contra-rotating propellers. An airliner
variant Tu-114 holds the record as the world's fastest propeller-driven
aircraft. Some experimental aircraft were designed for theoretically higher
speeds, but none attained or registered them. It also remains the only turboprop-powered strategic bomber in
operational use. Its distinctively swept-back wings are at 35°, a very
sharp angle by the standards of propeller-driven aircraft, and justified by
its operating speeds and altitudes. Its blades, which rotate faster than the speed of sound, according to
one media source, make it arguably the noisiest military aircraft on
earth, with only the experimental 1950s era Republic XF-84H
"Thunderscreech" turboprop powered
American fighter design as a likely rival. It was
reportedly so loud that the underwater Hydrophones of submerged submarines
and SOSUS could detect it.
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 US 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 Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and
incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms.
An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the
air, or, in general, the atmosphere of a planet. It counters the force of
gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an
airfoil, or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines.
The human activity that surrounds aircraft is called aviation. Crewed
aircraft are flown by an onboard pilot, but unmanned aerial vehicles may be
remotely controlled or self-controlled by onboard computers. Aircraft may
be classified by different criteria, such as lift type, propulsion, usage
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.
The United States Air Force (USAF) is the aerial warfare service branch of
the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven American uniformed
services. Initially part of the United States Army, the USAF was formed as
a separate branch of the military on 18 September 1947 under the National
Security Act of 1947. It is the most recent branch of the U.S. military
to be formed, and is the largest and one of the world's most
technologically advanced air forces. The USAF articulates its core
functions as Nuclear Deterrence Operations, Special Operations, Air
Superiority, Global Integrated ISR, Space Superiority, Command and Control,
Cyberspace Superiority, Personnel Recovery, Global Precision Attack,
Building Partnerships, Rapid Global Mobility and Agile.
