American F-15 tried to repeat the world famous stunt of the Russian Su-30

In December 2017, the two-seat multipurpose Su-30SM of the Russian Aerospace Forces "looked" into the IL-76 cargo hold in the skies over Syria. The video quickly spread around the world, gaining tens of millions of views on social networks and on YouTube. The leading mass media of the planet wrote about the skill of Russian pilots. After that, pilots from other countries tried to repeat this trick.

It should be noted that on that day, the Russians carried out a planned flight to deliver humanitarian supplies to remote areas of the war-torn country. The transporter and escort took off from the Khmeimim airbase. It was then that the supersonic Su-30SM flew up and "hovered" near the subsonic transporter, maintaining the minimum distance.

In August 2019, the Ukrainian pilot Yuriy Bulavka decided to repeat this on the Su-27 of the Ukrainian Air Force. For this, even a special photo session was held, which attracted the attention of local Russophobes and pro-American activists.

I would very much like the next one-on-one video to be from the F-22 (which would have been in service with Ukraine)

- commented VV Doctor.

Now the Americans decided to try to repeat the trick of the Russians. They also arranged a photo shoot, but made the task more difficult by fitting four combat aircraft to the cargo compartment of their transport aircraft (two F-15 fighters, one Panavia Tornado fighter-bomber and one Eurofighter Typhoon fighter) to arrange even more window dressing. The Americans tried to line up a group of supersonic fighters in a straight line, maintaining a short distance from the subsonic "truck" and among themselves. But for them, this task turned out to be difficult.

All this indicates that the stunt of the Russian crew touched colleagues from other countries. Therefore, there is a high probability that other similar videos will appear.

    Obviously, they did not succeed. The mace could not fix itself in the center; And when I tried to get closer, I could not keep the plane in place, talk about its beginning and he went to the side.
    The Americans were simply afraid to come close.
    Well, repetition is just repetition (especially bad). Let them come up with something of their own, memorable.

      There is no need to stipulate everything, the Americans flew up and lined up in the top five, this is already more difficult, because we are in one row and back to back. Created deliberately and deliberately for photography and advertising. That. that ours were the first to find such an approach with improvisation, that's the priority ...

        In fact of the matter. Ours carried out a specific and important task - the delivery of humanitarian cargo and the stunt was performed not for the show, but in such a way, so casually that it becomes clear that this is nothing special for our pilots. And these poor fellows put in so much effort, they puffed up their frenzied taxpayers' money. And for what? It's funny to look at this.

      I could not fix myself in the center, I walked with an offset to the right. And when I tried to get closer, I could not keep the plane in place, talk about its beginning and he went to the side.

      They took a small propeller plane of some kind, like an Elki, only a cargo plane. Its speed is too low, and accordingly, the Su-27 could not keep such a low speed and remain stable. It is heard that he played with the speed of the motors constantly, more or less. Add - starts to catch up, subtract - starts chatting.

    No, this is not so, the Americans just joined the plane and kept the line, the Ukrainian did not calculate which plane to join. If the workers in the IL-76 wanted, they would hold on to the antenna, and everything else is just a sketch here, a dude with a soul made the plane almost crawled into the cabin of the 76th

    I summarize:
    1. In both cases, this is a specially prepared operation, and not a spontaneous "pampering" of the combat pilot. (with all safety precautions, training, etc.)
    2. Filming was conducted from the edge of the ramp, and not from the depths of the transporter, so that it seemed that the fighter came closer. (but the American never came closer).
    3. Okraintsa really chatted harder. And yes, why did the Okrainets do everything above the airfield and so low?
    4. The American formation is certainly cool, but at a relatively safe distance (in fact, normal for their refueling system) in a relatively safe formation.

    Therefore, the question to the forum is when the amerskoe video was made. It is clear that refueling aircraft in the air was invented and carried out in the USSR 10 years earlier than in the USA. By the way, the amersky photographer uses gestures, not "Russian radio" - they just don't know about him !!!

And yet this is not IL 76 for you, a satellite trail, be healthy, it is present.

    Wow, there were blind imitators at the maneuver of the Russian pilots (sure, that they, others, were hurt)! wink
    But they did not invent anything of their own, they just copied it sadly! request
    Even then, at the beginning of 2018, having seen the video for the first time, I drew attention to the excellent aerodynamic stability of the Russian Su-30SM at a speed of ~ 0,5M directly in the behind-fuselage "shadow" of the flowing air, at the origins of the Il-76 turbulent wake jet (even at the design and development stage of this airborne transport "truck", a huge work was carried out to "lick" the aerodynamics - in order to reduce the turbulence of the air flows around the fuselage precisely at the time of the landing of people and equipment, with the cargo ramp and side landing doors open - the safe landing of dummies and the discharge of cargo into the testing process did not work out the first time, the designers had to come up with and make constructive changes!)!
    This, without thinking about the skill of the pilot, was largely achieved due to the improved aerodynamics of the Su-30SM and control algorithms for the steering surfaces (the first video clearly shows the continuous filigree operation of the tail horizontal rudders and the angles of the front "wings" at the root of the center section)!
    Such aerodynamic luxury does not have the old (inherited by the banderlog from our USSR!) Su-27 "Ukrainian zbroynykh sily", which is much more difficult to maintain its place in space, even taking into account the smaller hours of flight and the level of training of the tillers (one of the same "experienced "fat men who participated in the bombing of Donbass, wanting to impress with their" masterful aerobatics "their" new friend ", the American commander in charge of the Air Force, only arrogantly," masterfully "ditched him and himself, driving the" twin "Su-27 into the ground, so the Poles still they got off easily, otherwise they would have yelled at all with joy, tumbling towards the "meeting with the ground" .. winked )!
    For the sake of objectivity, I must say that due to a clear desire to save money and do everything "quickly", the American-Polish film crew filmed Pin's "aerobatics" at a fairly low altitude on a hot sunny day, over the border between the vast water surface and the steppe warmed by the sun surface where upward and downward air currents have a strong influence on the vertical stability of a slow-flying aircraft.
    Yes, and a small, smaller than the Su-27, twin-engine screw "truck" An-28 of Polish production (not from a separate detachment of aircraft providing CIA special operations?), Flying in dense layers of air, immediately "turbulizes" the wake stream behind it, without giving such a stable "shadow" as the giant Il-76 flying at high altitude, flawlessly "aerodynamically licked"!
    About the American and European flying motloh, also striving, with its inept "group sex", to "surpass" the unsurpassed aerobatics of the Russian Su-30SM pilot, I don't even want to write, so everything turned out so badly for them, or rather, it did not work! negative
    I don't impose my personal IMHO on anyone!

    1. Who measured the exact distance from the Su-30 to the cargo compartment of the Russian transport aircraft and, accordingly, the same parameter for the Ukrainian and American fighters?

    2. Where does the infa come from that the Ukrainian and the Americans tried to repeat the "fantastic trick of the Russian pilot", and not just carried out ordinary aerial surveys (in the case of the Ukrainian) or performed an ordinary task (in the case of the American)?
