    It is a Russian plane, I think it is a Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker.

    Cheers, I'm not good with jets. The pilot did amazingly well to escape along with the co-pilot!

    Don't recall which show it was at but the clip has been around for a while. My source pegged it as an Su-30.

    In the beginning of the video the reporter says "de Paris" so it probably was at the Paris Air Show.

    D'oh! It's amazing what you can pick up by actually turning the sound up when you watch a clip. My bad. :stoopyd: ](*,) : :oops: :

    Su-30 is a modernised Su-27 so they are similar.

    I have home video footage of the crash. I was there. Both pilots survived with a few scratches. There was a thread a while back about this one.

    I have actually witnessed several crashes over the years at airshows.

    I saw the Italian jets collide and crash at the Rammstein Germany air show and saw the C-5 Galaxy plow into the trees at the end of the run way while taking off out of Ramstein years and years ago.

    I have actually witnessed more crashes than I had hoped for, having been an helicopter crew chief and aircrew member for the last 6 years. Unfortunatly I have seen many people that I know die in air crashes and had to fly out to many crash sites to either rescue the crew or retrieve the bodies. Not something I really enjoyed doing, but it comes with the territory.
