True that. I’m loving the tourist stuff so far. And taxis, while mildly insane, are dirt cheap to get around the city. Basically the equivalent of $30 Canadian to get from my hotel to Zhukovsky (across the bank)

As a question, other than I'm assuming the Mig 31 and SU-47 which I gather were both towed out from the hangars onsite, would it be safe to assume a lot of these aircfraft will depart again on Monday?

Weren't they toed out from a hangar? If they flew in I think there is a slight chance of seeing it flying out on Monday

Yes, i was saying other than the stuff towed from a hangar. Apparently once you see it up close the SU-47 is very much not in flying condition. Still awesome that they dragged it out. Basically the equivalent of Nellis towing out an F-117, if not rarer since there’s only one su-47 in existence.

The SU-30SM pairs display has to be one of the best pairs displays ever. I can’t get over it.

This. I waxed lyrical about the Su-35 two years ago and rightly so, but if anything the Su-30 pairs demo this year is even better. The synchronised tailslide, with the two aircraft only feet apart, is quite, quite deranged.

On the Wednesday they didn’t tail slide, they went over backwards instead, and then did the flat spins right side by side. Not sure why it got changed, but i was in absolute awe.

Thank you all for the information for MAKS 2019. If I haven't encountered this forum, I would've not made it.

Thanks to you all, I had wonderful trip. Thank you!

I have a long shot...but my wife shrunk the snot out of my white SU-30 shirt with the pilot with the reflective visor...

Does anyone have any idea where one might try to purchase one now that the show is over?
