Ukrainian Air Force once again active in the eastern Russian-speaking part of the country. With Mig-29 Fulcrum aircraft still wearing the national display team color scheme.

A weird show of force was performed by the Ukrainian Air Force over Kramatorsk on Apr. 16: a fully armed Mig-29 Fulcrum overflew pro-Russia separatist blocking rails at very low altitude. But, interestingly, the aircraft sported a high-visibility, white, yellow and light blue livery: the one of the Ukrainian Falcons, the UkAF aerobatic display team.

Here’s a video of the improvised “airshow”:

 

On Apr. 15, the unconfirmed news that a Ukrainian Su-27 supporting a special operation in Kramatorsk was shot down circulated for some hours.
