Russians conquer the edge of space
October came to an end. But despite the nasty weather of inter-season period, all-weather Mig-29UB jet fighters with Russian second pilots onboard conquer the edge of space.
Severe weather conditions, even ice rains and strong winds could not prevent our brave sky lovers from performing the flights.
Owing to Vegitel, Petr, Igor and Leonid had the thrilling experience and the fact that flights were performed in almost extreme conditions makes these unforgettable impressions even more bright and colorful. With full-HD video films of their own flights our pilots will be able to recall those great moments when like professional jet fighter pilots they struggled with the weather at the breaking point of human and machine possibilities.
