The Swifts & The Russian Knights, Half a Century Combined

Behind incredible air stunts by MiG-29s & Su-27s

Not even the sky limits Russia's elite aerobatic teams, the Swifts (Strizhi) and the Russian Knights. They're famous across the world for their spectacular air-show displays. Combat Approved goes behind the scenes with these ace aviators for a back seat view of their extensive preparations for the most impressive stunt of all, a joint formation between both teams. They show how much courage and focus it takes to fly fast and heavy Su-27 and MiG-29 fighter jets, mere centimetres apart.
