MiG-29 cockpit footage, dogfight with Typhoon and missile launch in one stunning Fulcrum video

Jul 01 2014 - 7 Comments

“Fulcrum Drivers” features Polish Air Force Mig-29s as you have never seen them before.

Filmed by Polish Air Force pilots from 22nd Tactical Air Base – Malbork, the following video shows Mig-29 Fulcrums from a quite intimate point of view: the cockpit.

The footage, shot using GoPro cameras, brings the viewer on the Soviet Union-era fighter plane during aerobatics, formation flying, mock aerial combat against German Eurofighter Typhoons.

You can even see a quite rare live firing test of am R-60 (AA-8 Aphid) air-to-air missile.

Noteworthy, it looks like the video maker tried to censor the German Air Force roundel at 01:57 (weird!), and you can see the shadow of a small drone used to film the plane on the ground in the very first seconds of the video.

Polish Air Force has deployed four Mig-29 Fulcrum fighters to Siauliai Air Base, Lithunia, to provide Baltics Air Policing.

H/T to Matt Fanning for the heads-up.
