Russian Carrier Landings

Posted by Warren Peterson on May 4, 2010

The Russians are working on developing an aircraft carrier navy. Two You Tube videos show how they are doing. The first one demonstrates by a simulator and an actual carrier landing of a SU-35 fighter how it should be done. In the second, the pilot almost “bought the farm” on his shouldn’t be done landing attempt.

How it should be done.

…and shouldn’t.

Here’s a bonus video of air ops on the Russian carrier Admiral Kuznetsov.
