Indian Su-30 Flanker sideview

Power!, originally uploaded by Garysted.

The Su-30 Flanker is blessed with massive power, and this variant is fitted with variable geometry nozzles. Although not seen here (photography from behind was difficult, with far too much vapour), the afterburner gives out a distinctive blue coloured flame. Seeing these Indian Flankers operating beside RAF Tornado F3s at Waddington in the summer of 2007, you couldn't help feel sorry for the crews from 25 Sqn

    Hats of to Indian Airforce and thanks to pilots of airforce that they give their sacrifice so that citizens like us can sleep in piece.

    I agree. The su30 mk1 is an excellent multi-role fighter. If you would like a model of this one, go visit my website at

    Our aircraft replica of the Su30 Mk1 belongs to the no.20 squadron. it is made from mahogany and handcrafted.

    It measures 14 inches in length together with the stand and 8 inches in width.
