Flying Side By Side, A Pair Of IAF Sukhoi Su-30MKI And Su-30K [Image Of The Day]

The different variants of the pride of the Indian Air Force flying alongside each other.


A rare composition. The only photograph in the public domain, AFAIK, showing the older variant, the Su-30K [SB 004], flying alongside the Su-30MKI [SB 022], the eventual configuration in which the IAF originally intended to acquire their 'Flankers'.

Upon commencement of arrival of the MKI variants, the older variants were subsequently returned back to Russian, who then helped refurbish them, which finally found a buyer in Angola.
