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)
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...
The engines of that MIG29 seems to be running a bit hot.. nice photos! But where did Mikojan find that drop tank, it seems more appropriate for a farm tractor than a supersonic jet?
Thanks Wiebe. One trick is to practice on swallows and dragonflies before going to an airshow, jets will behave more or less as static motives then Should I mention that I had serious problems at the latest airshow.. all planes appeared so far away and hard to reach. When I was packing all stuff before going home I realised that the teleconverter was not at all mounted on the 100-400L as I thought. It was sitting properly packed in its pouch
