Sukhoi Su-22M4 “3713” display

Two weeks ago I had a pleasure to visit 23rd Base of Tactical Aviation in Minsk Mazowiecki, Poland where a small aviation picnic took place. One point of the program was Su-22 dynamic display. Despite hers obsolete construction from 70s , Su-22 with variable swept  wing , powerful and smoky Lulka engine and visible waist (transonic area rule design) is very attractive aircraft for every spotter or aviation enthusiast.

There can be many many words to write about aircraft which is in active service in Polish Air Force since 1974, but so  far just a few photos in new grey painting, during great display by Captain Pilot Robert Jankowski “Yankee” from 21st Tactical Aviation Base, enjoy:
