Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets over Jakarta: some images of the impressive Indonesian Air Force flypast

On Aug. 17, the Indonesian Air Force staged an interesting flypast over Jakarta to celebrate the 68th anniversary of Indonesia’s independence.

Eight Su-27/30 fighter jets belonging to the 11 Sqn (Skadron Udara) and six F-16s from 3 Sqn deployed to the Jakarta Halim Perdanakusuma international airport to take part in the rehearsals and the final flypast over the State Palace in Indonesia’s capital town.
