Stunning HD video: flying the Russian Su-34 Fullback bomber

Su-34 vs Su-27

Taxi, take-off, aerobatics and a bit of air combat from the cockpit of a Russian Su-34 Fullback.

The following series of videos is pretty impressive: with English subtitles, the footage brings you inside the cockpit of a Russian Su-34 Fullback bomber during a training sortie.

Filmed with cameras installed inside the cockpit and attached to the fuselage, the 4-part documentary includes a sort of dogfight with a Su-27: to be honest, the lighter and more maneuverable Flanker does not seem to react too much to the attacking Su-34; it’s a sacrificial victim rather than a real opponent.

Nevertheless, the clips are interesting and provide some interesting details about the Russian attack aircraft that is becoming a frequent visitor of the Baltic region.

Here below is the first clip. At the bottom you find the links to the remaining ones.
