Reminds me of the cartoons when a character go threw a door or a wall making a neat cutting.
That story with Yorktown reminded me of this collision of USS Platte with USS Trippe. Those cowboys were signalling each other, but neither one had turned away to avoid a hit untill it was too late (not exactely sure if I can post this here):
Just like in this video of USS Montana vs Irish Lighthouse:
The cockpit doesn't look anything like an F-15s canopy... look again... the canopy is tiny.It still looks like af F-15 from the Cockpit and intakes and their positions and not like an Mig-25.
Yeah, like the T-34 is an American design. The single tail Vigilante was crap and was pretty much a waste of time and energy and was replaced very quickly. On the other hand the Mig-25 was an excellent aircraft that performed several roles for many years. India only recently retired their aircraft in fact....and the MiG-25 looks like an A-5 Vigilante.
A parade took place on Moscow's Red Square on Friday to commemorate the legendary military parade of 1941 and in honor of the country's World War II effort
The November 7, 1941 parade, which commemorated the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, was held for the first time after Russia entered the war and aimed to raise morale as Nazi German forces closed in on Moscow. After troops marched pass leader Josef Stalin they headed straight for the front line just outside Moscow
Parade participants on Friday wore WWII Soviet dress and other historical military costumes with some on horseback while others marched in the traditional goose-step style
WWII veterans were invited to watch the parade as guests of honor
Russia commemorated legendary 1941 Red Square parade
Prior to the parade Moscow government officials laid flowers at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and Mayor Yury Luzhkov thanked the veterans: "Utmost gratitude to all the veterans who gave us the opportunity to live under peaceful skies
Although November 7 has not been celebrated as a national holiday since former president Vladimir Putin abolished it several years ago, opinion surveys say almost 30% of Russians mark the date as the anniversary of the Great Revolution
Very strong photo:
Long live all WWII veterans and thank you!
Never heard of this incident, pretty cool
Why in hell would he ram the US vessel ?
shadowing ok, the Yorktown and others were after all in their backyard
Flexing muscles with getting to close, OK, but actually and intentionally ramming them, damn
Isn't that considered an act of war or agression, the russian skipper was crazy I guess
