'Test Pilots' Su-27 at the IAT Boscombe Down 1992.

" Anatoly Kvochur in the 'Test Pilots' Su-27  at the IAT Boscombe Down 1992. He had flown non-stop from Moscow (others say he transitted via Jersey?) in formation with the support Tu-134.  As the Tu-134 landed, he flew alongside at zero feet, then climbed, did an impromptu display and then landed. He apparently got a bo**ocking from the Flight Safety Committee. I got his autograph later on that weekend. He was also responsible for this flypast in China and, no, it isn't faked....... Ken "
