Sukhoi Su-35S Super Flanker theme nr 12

Technological advancements have produced more compact and lighter hardware, such as the radar, shifting the centre of gravity to the aircraft's rear. These improvements removed the need for canards (Su-30) and saw the abandonment of the "tandem triplane" featured on several Su-27 derivatives. Also omitted was the Su-27's dorsal airbrake, which was replaced by differential deflection of the vertical stabilizers. Other aerodynamic refinements include a height reduction of the vertical stabilizers, a smaller aft-cockpit hump, and shorter rearward-projecting "sting".The thrust vectoring nozzles operate in one plane for pitch, but the canting allows the aircraft to produce both roll and yaw by vectoring each engine nozzle differently. A similar thrust vectoring system is also implemented on the PAK FA.The engine gives the Su-35 limited supercruise capability, or sustained supersonic speed without the use of afterburners. Radar-absorbent material is applied to the engine inlets and the front stages of the engine compressor to halve […]

Texan Tuesday > Talon TuesdayToday we'll take a bit of a departure from our normal Texan Tuesday
Originally shared by +Fly By Photography Texan Tuesday > Talon Tuesday Today we'll take a bit of a departure from our normal Texan Tuesday. Today I give you the Northrop T-38 Talon. In my opinion, this is one of the best looking aircraft ever to take to the sky! The Talon has a lot in common with the Texan. It really does! Both are advanced military trainers. Both have enjoyed a long life serving their country. The T-38 went into service with the US Air Force in 1961 and is still its advanced trainer to this day. Both were exported to many allied countries. See, a modern Texan. The T-38s in my photo were photographed Saturday at the 2016 Air Power Over Hampton Roads airshow at Langley AFB. They are assigned to the 71st Fighter Training Squadron "Ironmen", 1st Fighter Wing, based at Langley. Their primary mission is adversarial air training for the 1st Fighter Wing's F-22 Raptors. Yes, the fight against Raptors! "Black Talons"http://goo.gl/HirhWd Two T-38 Talons, of the 71st Fighter Training Squadron, take off in section on Saturday at Air Power Over Hampton Roads. ‪#‎TexanTuesday‬‪#‎TalonTuesday
