[Video] Mig-29K conducts take off and landing practice on new Indian aircraft carrier

As reported earlier, Mig-29K fighter jets are going to operate from INS “Vikramaditya”, the carrier once part of the Soviet Navy, purchased by the Indian Navy in 2004.

The carrier is conducting its final operational tests, including day and night take off and landing practice by a Russian Mig-29K.

The video is in Russian language but even if you can’t understand you can still see the interesting footage of the Fulcrum operating on the flight deck on the Indian carrier. Fully loaded and armed.
