Was he about to climb sharply ? The G in those single seat aerobatic aircraft must be cruel ! I was in an aerobatic side-by-side two seater one and couldn't lift the camera to my eye !
I think I got the photo at the only second in the program where Jurgis was flying straight and level so it should be close to 1G.. and he was not far above the ground either SU-31 is built for 12G but Jurgis' plane is modified (he participated in the development when working at Sukhoi)Was he about to climb sharply ?

Google translate gives 'blind landing' which seems reasonable although going that slow you could just hang a potato on a string and feel your way down...Hi all, the spammer is back :-D
What about a Fieseler Fi 156 Storch restored to flying condition with authentic German WWII markings?
Im trying to figure out what the sign 'sacklandung verboten' on the dasboard implies, it is difficult to find any aircraft which beats Storch regarding STOL capabilities but maybe there are some limitations also for this aircraft.

Great shot Erik - and looking at your flickr pages... you could teach me a lot of tricks to get better at "in flight" photography ! With those swallows, dragonflies and (not to be forgotten ) airplanes - all tack sharp and perfectly framed - I'm completely awestruck...Thanks Click and Wiebe!
'Baltic Bees' performed perfect formation flight with their L39C Albatros jet trainers..
I wish I knew how to link to flickr so the pictures appears here... advice needed
