    Fighters tend to run fuel rich. It makes more smoke, but keeps the engine cool enough to allow high performance without melting the turbine blades, and still uses less fuel than turning on the afterburners.

    This kind of excessive smoke is the trademark of RD-33 family up until the latest versions. Not a problem imo but it's still there.

    that was my thinking as well. "that thing smokes like a MIG, wonder where they got the engines"
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    Does anyone know what the white structure on the nose gear is for? My google-fu has failed.
