Hi folks. For those of you who haven't heard the news, two Sukhoi Su-27 Flankers are nearing completion at Pride Aircraft in Rockford, Illinois. They are fourth-generation Soviet-bloc jet fighters with near zero-time engines and airframes, and completely-Westernized cockpits and avionics. They are for sale to anyone who wants the thrill of owning a Mach 1.8 capable, twin-tailed, afterburning, 50,000 feet-per-minute climbing, 9G-pulling ROCKETSHIP.
For more information, and photos and videos, go to www.prideaircraft.com/flanker.htm.
