MOSCOW, August 22 (RIA Novosti) - Russia’s fifth-generation T-50 and Sukhoi Su-35S multirole fighter jets will perform stunning aerobatics at Moscow’s MAKS International Aviation and Space show, their maker Sukhoi said Thursday.
The jets will display dramatic maneuvers, including what is known as the Puchagev Cobra in which a flying airplane suddenly raises its nose to the vertical position and slightly beyond, and then drops it back to level flight attitude, the company said in a statement.
MAKS 2013, which will run from August 27 through September 1, is expected to be attended by more than 100,000 visitors every day.
The T-50, currently undergoing tests in prototype form, made its first public appearance at MAKS 2011 two years ago.
