Test Pilots Su-27 History
The "Test Pilots" were the Russian Air Force aerobatic display team which was established in early 1990's from the Gromov's Flying Research Institute at the Zhukovsky airfield. The team typically flew two Su-27 fighters. During its existence, the team also flew the Su-30. In addition, at some airshows, only one of the team's aircraft would perform. The aircraft were painted in a white, blue and red color scheme and used white smoke generators. This was also the Russian aerobatic team that most often visited foreign airshows.
