The Eastern cultural phenomenon of having a camera in the car (a “dash cam”) results in often bizzare or interesting clips, that have several thousands hits on YouTube (like the recent one showing a meteorite over Russia).
Nevertheless former parts of Ivan’s empire are not behind what is shown in the following clip.
What is different about this video recorded on Apr. 9, 2013, is the fact, that the landing planes seem to ignore the traffic! The video shows cars passing by and two Su-25 Frogfoot jets landing as if it was an ordinary, everyday procedure.
The gear of both the planes is clearly extended as the jets fly at extremely low level over the traffic: even if they were not actually landing, they are dangerously close to the cars below them.
Here’s the video, enjoy:
