Formation flying from some Russian guys, its very well produced, love the mostly Joe Satriani music too, very big fan of his.
Looks like no Track IR going on here and deffo way before VR, done over a LAN, so good bandwidth right there, we do see some jitters going on at times, but that could be due to old sim code and individual PC specs trying to keep up?
We don’t see much online virtual airshow type flying any more, this was pretty groundbreaking when it first came out though, was really jaw drop stuff for me who was still on dial up at time … or still very slow broadband.
Is it realistic? I don’t know? Sustained knife edge passes, probably not, but really am no expert … for sure I’ve seen the Red Arrows at UK airshows do the heart thing … and I don’t think they were the first to do it either, but to do it in a simulation on a LAN and record it so well, they have my respect for sure
Cobra manoeuvre is for real I’m sure.
This is still an awesome video after all these years and the music makes it
