Quite dramatic footage indeed ......these Allah O Akbar chant though reminds me of Afghanistan Jihadi chanting similar calls .....not a good sign to look forward to in days ahead in Syria.

Seems the footage started after the helicopter was hit by missile and from the looks of it, the pilot was trying to under take auto rotation to bring down the chopper. What could have caused the explosion?

From Zero to Four Seconds it seems like a 17. After that I am not sure.

Tha explosion was colossal. Nothing was left after. Can't even see anything minor falling down after the kaboom.
Sheeeez the pilots ......

An NDTV program on the Indian C 130J. At 8:26 the anchor says that "zaroorat padne dushman pe bomb bhi barsaa sakta hai." (If needed, it can also drop bombs on the enemy)

One more thing I like about him is the number system he uses. We are used to seeing nos above 1 crore as 100 crore or 1000 crore. Here is a better and easier one

1 crore = 100 lakh
1 arab = 100 crore
1 kharab = 100 arab

So India's budget which is approx 2 lakh crore rupees can be stated as 20 kharab rupees

Amriki pilots seem to like that. The F/A 18 did that maneuver at Aero India - I have clips of that somewhere on Youtube
Watch from here for 1 minute. He does it twice

Shivji,

I am sure that the F-18 can do it but not to the effect of the F-22 ... What the F-22 displays is its TVC to pitch quickly and then its very high TWR to climb ... the result is a really stunning turn, almost like pulling vertically from a slow-cobra maneuver(if one could call it so).

That maneuver is one of the more tame maneuvers from the F-22 I guess - but it does show off TV and power. The F/A 18 too was spectacular in its lazy climbs. A "lazy/slow" climb is a hallmark of excess power where kinetic energy from a high speed approach is not required to climb. Most modern fighters seem to show that off to a greater or lesser extent in airshows - but the MiG 29 and Su 27/30 set the trend from the late 80s. None of the older types - not even the F-16 can even compare IMO

Mig-29 vanilla version (and the OVT) is definitely a beast when it comes to maneuvers. I think I have told the story of AI'07 when I saw the Mig-29 OVT go up standing next to F-16 and Gripen pilots. The crowds were enthralled, but we three almost simultaneously looked at each other. We all were gasping. As an aircraft jingo, I am yet to see something as orgasmic as that display and I am fairly certain that I won't see it for sometime.

Actually I was a strong supporter for the Mig-35 for MMRCA after seeing that (but ofcourse there is more to a plane than aerodynamics).

I may be mistaken, but from my memories if AI'07, I think it was Mig-35 (in the brilliant red and blue livery) that performed those amazing manoeuvres no?

I remember watching openmouthed at the jet coming to a near stop, swaying downwards like a falling leaf and then the engines "roaring" to life as the aircraft rocketed in a burst of speed.

The plane in the brilliant blue and the red livery is the Mig-29 OVT.

The Mig-35 was also present at AI'07. But it looked like this:

Thanks for the pics. I believe I may have seen both the jets put on some fabulous displays- I remember standing awestruck at the sheer audacity of some of those aerobatics.

This 47 minute video is a must watch for all Military Aviation freaks. It is the story of teh Vulcan bomber from Asuncion island to hit Port Stanley airfield in the Falklands in the last Hurrah of a superpower in its dying days.

The video highlights the complexity of force projection - even as piddly as one bomb raid 8000 miles away and shows how 13 refuellers and one two bombers, of which one turned back, resulted in one dumb bomb out of 21 hitting the runway.

When we talk of force projection - this last gasp of Britain shows just how powerful and organized the US is today and how far any competitor will have to go to catch up.

^^ truly said , also the amount of power they used in Falklands , was almost all of their navy , since then there is a decline. US navy is ten times of that size and still growing. When they declared 60% of their fleet will move to China-pacific it means it ends chinese navy's dream of power projection or even local dominance.

^^ plz add these as well http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wasp_class_amphibious_assault_ship

just in case....

ps: the growth is in terms of increase in operational spread and no. of bases , lot more to come in SE Asia...,
i.e. more bases more spending.
