Oohh scary! I dont get it Sir! Its just such a dangerous thing to do.So many things can go wrong, cant they? Things that are beyond one`s control? How then,do the pilots ever get motivated into things like these?? You`ll know the answer I`m sure! :)

Dear Sir,
I watched the similar manoeuvre in air show, is this flown by Indian fighter pilot? The display I'd seen in the air show was done by Russian pilot.

SM and HDWK: Scary, awesome, wow, cool.... all that, and MORE. This is just too beautiful - it is an expression of the frontiers that this machine has crossed, and reached, and the seemingly effortless skill and concentration that the human inside has demonstrated. Hats off to the designers and all those associated with conceiving, designing, manufacturing, maintaining and flying these awesome works of science and art, which are some of the finest weapon platforms. I was telling my wife how I would give anything to be in that machine, just to feel its awesome and mind numbing performance.

Piper: Yes, it is dangerous. Motivation - achieving perfection in one's loved field - the same reasons that Dr. Bashi had when he held my heart in his hand to bypass some blocked arteries. Wasn't that dangerous? An aircraft is a weapons platform and has to be handled beyond what the adversary can cope with so that one can fire one's weapons before him. The aircraft has to become an extension of one's body to achieve this level of perfection. Lots of skill, hard work, devotion and concentration required to be able to display this level of skill, consistently,in the sky.

Suresh: I too watched the Aero India display this year. The Su 30 during the display was flown by an IAF pilot. Even that was very good. My only regret during the display was that I did not have a camera that could capture the display.

This display, I believe, is flown by a Russian test pilot, although I cannot say for sure, as this was received by me as a forward.

Nancy: I was too spell bound. I have seen a lot but this is the first time, I saw something like this and like you rightly imagined.... I did see it a number of times just to enjoy every little manoeuvre.... it is really breath taking!!
