You see many civilian airline engine producing some flame/glow and those are dry thrust.
While i'm not an expert on this matter but if i may dare to share my limited knowledge in these things.
As many of you know, the Su30 or AL31FP only produces Blue Flames, other blu burners are those of the Tu22M & Tu160
The photo on the left ^ is SB103 on t/o roll down Waddington for Indradhanush 07 & the one on the right ^ is of mine AI 11 just second(s) after rotation.
Point is: Austin i've not seen anything orange/red/magentaish on the Su30s, even at Max burner these stay blue or blueish at best.
I have a popular Album on JP called ΛFTΞЯBUЯИΞЯ
All Red/Orangish burners are predominantly Western, is what i gather.
