Russian Su-35 without a canopy
Here’s how it goes: A Russian movie company hires two Sukhoi pilots to film a couple of stunts. The pilots agree to take off without a canopy.
Apparently following a plot-twist in the film, the back-seat pilot ejects from the aircraft while the front-seater keeps flying.
“The maximum speed I achieved on the jet plane without a canopy glass was around two times greater than speed of sound. While on this speed I even managed to pull out my fingers in glove for an inch or two outside – it became heated very fast because of immense friction force plane undergoes with the air. Usually such tests were conducted in winter time, so it was deadly cold without a canopy and I was pretty glad when this heating began, counting minutes before the plane would reach enough speed/velocity so that the air around becomes hot enough. But it wasn’t the main problem for me. In my personal rating of the dangers connected with such tests one of the most bad sides was the extreme roar. Because of this extreme roaring you couldn’t hear the radio so you were flying in deaf mode, you were afraid to pull throttle harder just because going faster was meaning going louder“, writes the pilot.
Oh, and this was all done with Sukhoi’s tail number 801, which is nothing less than the SU-35UB prototype – one of the most advanced jets Sukhoi ever built!http://wonderful-russia.net/russian-army/russian-su-35-without-canopy/
