    I hope that this has not been posted before...it really is a pretty cool video clip. The camera view is uncanny...it has a "6DOF" feel to it (lol).

    p.s. The Stuka is a replica, but its a pretty good one...

    Nice video. By the small US flag on the tail fin I suppose this plain is owned by someone in the States.

    There is another airworthy Ju 87 Stuka replika in Russia though. Here is one picture (taken from the Airliners.net):

    That pic just doesn't look right. Airframe lines are off, cockpit perspex is off, wheel spats are off, nose spinner, chin radiator, rear wheel, dive flaps wrong and obviously wrong scale. Nice try, but frankly sucks. With all that money what a friggin' waste.

    I agree that this Russian Stuka is far cry from exact replica in any scale. It gives more of just a resemblance to real Stuka.
