    Looks like he's desperately trying to not stall while maintaining such a low (for a fighter) speed, he even pulled the landing gear out..

    OT but. . .There's a book called "Warthog", and in it they talk about a battle damaged A-10 trying to get back to base during Desert Storm. It was low on fuel so a KC-10 went down to refuel it. They went as slow as they could go but the flaps couldn't be set to the setting for the slowest speed unless the gear was down. So they put the gear down, deployed the flaps further, then raised the gear back up. The A-10 was going so slow (it ain't exactly speedy on it's best days) they were almost falling out of the air to give it fuel. Very interesting book if you like the A-10.

    Long time ago I've seen a video where Russian MiG-29 was flying next to Cessna, with very high AoA, but steady, without swinging from one side to another. Maybe it was asked by the film crew...

    I think that is the case. You can see that later in the video it is stable.

    My guess is that swinging will be shown in a dogfight scene in that movie. Of course they won't show that gears are down.
