    I found it today, so maybe it's the best place to post it. I never was in plane (retired Infantryman), but I like those pictures, so maybe you want to take a look also:

    Yes, you right. When I was in Moscow in early '90 I saw SU 27 on the ground in some kind of museum (exposition). It's so big! Like two houses together! I heard it's one of the best planes in this class (as I said I'm green, so maybe I'm wrong), but I can't imagine how it can be...

    On AvWeb they have 2 videos of the Thunderbird crash: one from the field and one from the cockpit... it really shows how little time there was from the pilot punching out to impact.
