Sukhoi Su-27

Four images taken with a compact camera,leaning against a wall....sorry guys! :-)
It was a raining day at Vystavka Dostizheniy Narodnogo Khozyaystva (VDNKh) (Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy,Moscow)
The Story
The Sukhoi Su-27 is a twin-engine supermaneuverable fighter aircraft designed by Sukhoi. It was intended as a direct competitor for the large United States fourth-generation fighters such as the Grumman F-14 Tomcat and F-15 Eagle,heavy aircraft ordnance, sophisticated avionics and high maneuverability. The Su-27 was designed for air superiority missions, and subsequent variants are able to perform almost all aerial warfare operations.
The Su-27 entered service with the Soviet Air Forces in 1985.
The newest and most advanced version of the Su-27 is the Su-35S

Great shot - elegantly framed and post processed. You can see this beautiful plane in flight herehttp://www.pbase.com/kazmierczyk/image/163675181 but these days more often you can see its derivative versions in the skies of Syria, with the Russians bombing Aleppo
