Wow, how is this even possible? This video looks as if the jet is defying laws of physics.
I know that fighter jets are capable of some extraordinary maneuvers but this is ridiculous. The visitors of this air show had a chance to witness something so rare only a handful of pilots can do it – a vertical 90 degree take off. At this velocity, a maneuver like this turns this MIG-29 into a rocket, as it relies solely on its afterburners to gain altitude. You got to be crazy good or just plain crazy to even attempt something like this. It looks spectacular though.
