Drive Wire: Fly With Russia’s Kubinka Diamond Aerobatics Team


Who doesn’t love watching 9 fighter pilots slice through the air at 621 miles per hour? This video comes to us from the tailwing of a MIG-29 and the cockpit of an SU-27 of the Russian Air Force’s Kubinka Diamond Aerobatics Team. Comprised of four flankers from the Russian Knights and five fulcrums from the Swifts, these airborne genies fly within a few feet of one another as they backflip, barrel roll and bank their way to glory.
