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

“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.

  1. I always wonder why Italian Air Force never make videos like this, for f*** sake, YouTube is full of cockpit footages of other air forces during exercises, mock dogfights etc…we are only allowed to see how well our pilots can park their planes on the apron or how well they mount and dismount from their aircrafts……

  2. This video would be a lot better if they didn’t use the speed-up / slow-down technique that became popular for terrible rap videos. Normal speed is quite dramatic enough.

  3. Great video, respect to our Polish brothers. Love the music too, one of my favorite songs.
