The North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie was the prototype version of the proposed B-70 nuclear-armed deep penetration bomber for the United States Air Force's Strategic Air Command. Designed in the late 1950s, the Valkyrie was a large six-engined aircraft able to fly at beyond Mach 3 at an altitude of 70,000 ft (21,000 m), which would have allowed it to avoid interceptors, the only effective anti-bomber weapon at the time.
Two XB-70 prototypes were built for the U.S. Air Force. The aircraft program's high development costs, and changes in the technological environment with the introduction of effective high-altitude anti-aircraft missiles, led to the cancellation of the B-70 program in 1961. Although the proposed fleet of operational B-70 bombers was never built, the XB-70A aircraft were used in supersonic test flights from 1964 to 1969, performing research for the design of large supersonic aircraft. One prototype crashed following a midair collision in 1966; the other is on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Ohio.
The XB-70 was designed to be a high-altitude bomber-sized Mach 3 experimental aircraft with six engines. Harrison Storms shaped the XB-70 with a canard surface and a delta wing, which was built largely of stainless steel, sandwiched honeycomb panels, and titanium. The XB-70 was designed to use supersonic technologies developed for the Mach 3 Navaho, as well as a modified form of the SM-64 Navaho's all-inertial guidance system.
The XB-70 was equipped with six General Electric YJ93-GE-3 turbojet engines, designed to use JP6 jet fuel. The engine was stated to be in the "30,000-pound class", but actually produced 28,000 lbf (124.6 kN) with afterburner and 19,900 lbf (88 kN) without afterburner.
The Valkyrie first became supersonic (Mach 1.1) on the third test flight on 12 October 1964, and flew above Mach 1 for 40 minutes during the following flight on 24 October. The wing tips were also lowered partially in this flight. XB-70 #1 surpassed Mach 3 on 14 October 1965 by reaching Mach 3.02 at 70,000 ft (21,300 m).
Honeycomb panel deficiencies discovered on XB-70 #1 were almost completely solved on XB-70 #2, which first flew on 17 July 1965. On 3 January 1966, the second XB-70 attained a speed of Mach 3.05 while flying at 72,000 ft (21,900 m). XB-70 #2 reached a top speed of Mach 3.08 and maintained it 20 minutes on 12 April 1966.
On 19 May 1966, XB-70 #2 reached Mach 3.06 and flew at Mach 3 for 32 minutes, covering 2,400 mi (3,840 km) in 91 minutes of total flight.
The XB-70 flight test data and materials development aided the later B-1 Lancer supersonic bomber program, and, through intelligence, the Soviet Tupolev Tu-144. The development programs for numerous US military aircraft (B-70, SR-71, and U-2) led the Soviet Union to develop the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25 interceptor.
Mikhail Pogosyan, the General Director of Russia's aircraft-building giant Sukhoi, stated that the sixth generation of the Russian combat aviation would be divided into eight different aircraft and concepts. These concepts can be presented in MAKS Aviasalon 2011 that will take place from August 16th, 2011 to August 21st in Zhukovsky, Moscow Region, Russia.
Six concepts will be presented by Sukhoi Design Bureau OKB-51, one by Mikoyan and Gurevich Design Bureau and one concept by State research centre Zhukovskiy Central Aero-hydrodynamic Institute.
The eight different aircraft and concepts must have, plasma stealth capabilities, anti-stealth capabilities, directed energy weapons, cyber attack capabilities, integrated self-protection, electronic attack and sophisticated integrated air defense systems.
Russian Sixth Generation jet fighter expected to enter service in the Russian Air Force in 2030-2050 timeframe.
Quite simply one of the most legendary fast jet demos of recent years, showing the possibilities available to a pilot when he has 360 degrees of Vectored Thrust to play with.
This aircraft is one of the Mig29M prototypes, retro fitted with 360 degree thrust vectoring nozzles, enabling it to turn within its' own axis and produce the amazing manouvers you see here, including the backflip, the super cobra, and the flat spin. All under total control.
Also, during the final part of the display, we see the pilot stop playing around and open the jet up and really let rip with a very high speed rolling loop, for me possibly the highlight of the display.
This aircraft is still in this colour scheme, but sadly, like most Russian fighters rarely ventures outside Russia, but it came over in 2006 to do Farnborough and the Paris air show. Here is its' moment of magic . . .

Amazing Footage of Sukhoi Su33 on the Admiral Kuznetsov.
The Sukhoi Su-33 (Russian: Сухой Су-33; NATO reporting name: Flanker-D) is an all-weather carrier-based air defence fighter designed by Sukhoi and manufactured by KnAAPO. It is a derivative of the Su-27 "Flanker" and was initially known as the Su-27K. First used in operations in 1995 aboard the carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, The fighter officially entered service in August 1998, by which time the designation "Su-33" was used. Following the break-up of the Soviet Union and the subsequent downsizing of the Russian Navy, only 24 aircraft were produced. Attempted sales to China and India fell through.
Compared with the Su-27, the Su-33 has a strengthened undercarriage and structure, folding wings and stabilators, all for carrier operations. The wings are larger than on land-based aircraft for increased lift. The Su-33 has upgraded engines and a twin nose wheel, and is air refuelable. The aircraft's range and payload are greater than those of the rival MiG-29K, but the Mikoyan fighter has more advanced avionics and is capable of a wider range of missions, including strike operations. In 2009, the Russian Navy ordered the MiG-29K as a replacement for the Su-33.

El Kamov Ka-50 Black Shark (en ruso: Ка-50, designación OTAN: Hokum A) es un helicóptero de ataque monoplaza ruso que cuenta con el distintivo sistema de rotor coaxial del departamento de diseño de Kamov. Fue diseñado en los años 1980 y adoptado para el servicio de las Fuerzas Armadas de Rusia en 1995.
Como es corriente en la doctrina de helicópteros rusa, el aparato está artillado con un cañón orientable de tiro rápido para su empleo contra objetivos en tierra y aire. Se trata de un cañón 2A42 de 30 mm con dos tipos de munición, seleccionables en vuelo para cumplir misiones anticarro o antipersonal.
El Ka-50 ha sido también el primer helicóptero del mundo dotado con un asiento eyectable. Antes que se active el cohete en el respaldo del asiento Zvezda K-37-800, las hojas de rotor se desechan pirotécnicamente. Entre su aviónica se incluyen un HUD, sistema de guía inercial, radar de seguimiento de terreno y un FLIR (sensor infrarrojo) de alta capacidad. Para su defensa dispone de contramedidas electrónicas y receptores de alerta radar, así como dispersores de bengalas y señuelos antirradar.

Es un misil aire-aire de alcance medio, fabricado por la empresa italiana Selenia (luego parte del grupo Alenia Difesa tras su fusión con Aeritalia y hoy MBDA). A pesar de haberse desarrollado totalmente en Italia, esta arma se diseñó para ser compatible con los sistemas que usan el estadounidense AIM-7 Sparrow. El sistema de armas superficie-aire que utiliza este misil se llama Spada en su versión móvil de campaña y en la naval se conoce como Albatros.
Aunque es similar al Sparrow, su radar de búsqueda semiactiva y su guía monopulso lo hacen más resistente a ECM y más preciso. Su radomo y su cuerpo anterior se han diseñado para un funcionamiento más eficaz a velocidades supersónicas.
El Aspide se encuentra en servicio en 17 países, entre los que se cuentan Italia, Argentina, Perú, Egipto, Tailandia y China (esta última desarrolló versiones locales llamadas LY-60 y PL-10). Cabe destacar que en Italia está siendo reemplazado en las nuevas fragatas FREMM por el misil MBDA Aster.
