Impressive Aerobatics

Very impressive indeed.. Very strong airframe to take those sort of forces...
All but useless capabilities for anything other than air shows though since dog fights are done more through computer assistance and from great distances between adversaries. None the less - great fun to watch... If he had smoke coming from the wing tips as I've seen in some other clips, it would have been even better as it gives more point of reference as to the jets direction etc..

'Quite astonishing! I've never seen anything like that before!
Buuuuuuuut...I doubt an anti-aircraft missile would be fooled by any of it. :D

Yes, they can fly backwards via Inertia and gravity...
For many years we've seen stunt planes do tail slides with smoke on... Very fascinating to watch..
What is even more interesting are the flat spins and the control the pilot has to break that spin, nose over and start flying again...
