6/20/16-Above is much better resolution video of same video seen below, and found by Fritz Wagoner on YouTube. Fritz is one of our FASF members and also an active member of our Airfield Site Survey Team, too! Besides being a pilot, Fritz has an extensive background in Law Enforcement and those forensic skills helped him come up with some very enlightening information on this short video. Look for his comments here on site.
This is the first time we’ve posted a video puzzler on the site. The above (Just click on the photo above to see the short – 1 minute long – clip) video shows a pretty remarkable Delta Winged Cunard Fighter Jet actually nimbly dancing on its tail. The email containing this alleged supersonic “Russian Sukhoi” jet fighter was sent by a former USAF pilot and FASF member and friend to FASF member and frequent website contributor, also a former USAF Pilot, Virg Hemphill. The clip is described as follows, “See the Russian Fighter Plane doing a delicate solo dance at ground level. It is even more amazing when one realizes this is a deadly plane capable of supersonic speeds and dropping nuclear bombs and shooting down almost any fighter plane.“
Meanwhile, Virg and your Webmaster have some doubts that this is a true statement or that the video shows what it claims to be a Russian Sukhoi Fighter. In fact our own opinions are that the plane in the video may by a large replica of the Chinese Fighter, the “J-10” Delta Wing jet and that, furthermore, it may even be a large scale Radio Controlled (RC) version of that ship at that. The only Russian Supersonic Sukhoi fighters with which we’re familiar are all twin-tailed and twin engined non-delta winged machines.
So, here’s a chance FOR YOU to help clear the air about this sensational looking video clip. There are other hints in this video that may help you determine what is really being witnessed.
