    Look above the jet. You can just barely make out a gamer tag.

    Also, look in the two lower corners...

    About getting your attention, ponytail.

    I hope it is a video game. A real pilot would get in big trouble.

    Video game.

    Wasn't there a Soviet fighter that could 'stall', do a pirouette to change direction, and recover?

    I know there are biplanes that can stall, spin and recover. I am not sure about jets, not a lot of wing surface to work with.

    I think this is the jet, if not the exact manuver I was thinking of. 3:00 video:

    Sukhoi Su-27

    The Sukhoi Su-27 could do the Pugachev's Cobra. I do not think it would stall but it was a very high angle maneuver that could slow the plane down very slow. I have seen F-/A-18s do the high alpha stunt too. Problem is you are going real slow!

    As far as my Avatar Just keep you boots on! you never know when there will be an alert!

    Three squadrons of F-35s are currently being deployed to hill AFB Utah.

    The Sukhoi 37 coyuld go to complete stall and change directions from high speed. F-35 can do the same.

    Thanks for the video, Vincine. That was just nuts.
