Very cool collection of shots (and aircraft). Hadn't seen a photo of the Chinese "Dauphin" before either.

The Chengdu J10 looks very similar to the X-31 demonstrator that displayed at the 1995 Paris airshow!

Great photos from an airforce we don't see much of. :clap:

In fact the J10 was developed with help from IAI and shows influence of the ill-fated IAI Lavi fighter.

14. this Ilyushin Il-76MD was a very nice surprise visitor

15. J10A taxi out for their display
