Sunday Aircraft Cheesecake (Su-47/S37 Berkut)

I love airplanes. I especially love military aircraft, and even moreso unique-looking military aircraft. For the next couple of weeks, I will try to highlight an aircraft that strikes my fancy. It may or may not become a regular feature.

This week's entry is the Sukhoi Su-47/S37 Berkut:



What I like about this fighter is the forward-swept wing, something I find quite visually appealing in an aircraft. Whether the wing shape confers any performance benefits is open to debate.

Enjoy the pic, and let me know if you have a favorite aircraft you would like to see featured.

I've always loved the way that plane looks.

Pappy rides again!

We're going to end up with craft that look like the illustrations in 1930s science fiction magazines. It's just a matter of time.

This is a very cool feature. I can't wait for the next installment!

He's going the wrong way... [Planes, Trains, & Automobiles]

I really like watching "the airplane channel"... there is ALWAYS something facinating to watch.

I prefer civil planes - youb know those small private planes - but I've really enjoyed your pics. Thank a lot!

I love that plane and know much about it. You should look up its modified version the S-32. Take a closer look at its vectors (it is a bit unique). Also on the topic of Russian aircraft look up the SU-32, this modified longer-range version of the SU-27 has a kitchen, and toilet behind the pilot. Be expecting to see more of me on your site often.
