ZHUKOVSKY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, RUSSIA – The 2019 edition of the MAKS International Aviation and Space Salon – from August 27 till September 1 – was again one to remember! Awesome demos with great pilots showing their amazing skills in the best fighter jets of the Russian Air Force, like the brand new 5th Gen fighter jet: the high tech and stealthy Sukhoi Su-57, but also in newer 4th Gen fighter jets like the Su-30SM. In the next video, you can watch the pilot performing an impressive and extreme high alpha maneuver for more than 10 seconds!
MAKS International Aviation and Space Show
MAKS is an international airshow held at Zhukovsky International Airport, the home of the Gromov Flight Research Institute in Zhukovsky, 40 km (25 miles) southeast of Moscow, Russia. The event was organized by the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade until 2009, more recently by the Government of Moscow and Aviasalon. The first show, Mosaeroshow-92, was held in 1992. Since 1993, the air show was renamed as MAKS and is held biennially on odd years.
The 2019 edition of MAKS Airshow was held from August 27 till September 1. The last 3 days – during the weekend – are open to the public, like at the airshows in Paris and Farnborough.
