Such great aircraft and the crew
The whole "my followers are asking questions" thing feels forced and cheapens the documentary.

I wonder how much it cost to fly that generator from Prague to Perth.

2 million dollars. Now that is incredible.
This is an extremely capable cargo plane.

And he has every right to to be proud of his plane. This thing is awesome. I love seeing all those analog gauges, rather than those , no personality digital screens.

The scene at 19:04 is a brilliant shot, overall this is a great documentary. Well done!
If the Antonov An-225 was used by Ukraine to drop bombs. Would Russia shoot it down?

I'd like to sneak off into the cargo hold and do a quickie with that blonde!
Nigel Maccuver
Do Australians TRUST Ukrainian aviation to transport the generator. What a rubbish dumb question 🤮😂😂😂
Nice video but the commentator is extremely annoying.
Ted Knecht
Loading must be pretty technical. That load would need to be right on the CG of the plane.
Liberty Patriot
Boizemoi...! Good luck and many more safe flying years !
4:49 - is that the normal gear retraction sequence? Seems very unusual that the front BLGs stay deployed for so long

9. Chengdu J-20
China, for all its greatness, hasn't always made the best aircraft, but in 2011, they unveiled the J-20. Many consider this to be the first jet fighter from China that matches up to what Russia, the United States, and others can do, and for good reason.

8. Lockheed Martin F-35
The Lockheed Martin F-35 was built as the cheaper, yet still fully functional replacement to the F-22 Raptor. For a replacement, it truly lives up to the hype. The F-35 is one of the deadliest fighter jets on the planet. This is a multi-purpose fighter jet, and one that serves not just the Air Force, but the Marines who started using the F-35B in 2015.

7. F-15 Eagle
You'd think that after 30 years of service that a plane like the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle would eventually be taken out of the lineup. But instead, the F-15 Eagle has proven time and time again that this craft is something to behold, and it deserves our respect.

6. Sukhoi Su-57
Russia has often been known for their masterful jet fighters, with their MiG's being both legendary and feared.But when it comes to modern fighters, they're pinning their hopes on the Sukhoi Su-57. Like a lot of jet fighters, this one was built from the ground up, in order to replace some "aging" models, including the MiG-20 and the Su-27 (which they are selling to China).

5. Eurofighter Typhoon
Even back in 1986, there was a desire to make jet fighters who could go beyond the visual range of combat as well as do what needed to be done in battle, and so the Eurofighter Typhoon was born.

4. Sukhoi Su-35
The Sukhoi Su-35 is another Russian Jet, built based off of the Su-25 model. Don't let its paint job fool you, this is a key part of the current Russian Air Force, and has been in use by the country since 2012. The Sukhoi Su-35 was built to be an air superiority fighter, one that can match many other jets from other countries.

3. MiG-31
The MiG's series of jet fighters are by and large the most recognizable jets that Russia has ever used, and their prowess in the Korean and Vietnam wars have made them a staple of air warfare. With the Mikoyan MiG-31BM we have the latest model of this esteemed line, but it also proves that jet design has come a long way since.

2. F-22 Raptor
In the USA, the F-22 Raptor is still widely considered one of the best fighter jets ever made. Created by Lockheed Martin, the F-22 Raptor is a fighter jet that is nearly invisible to all radar systems, which makes it incredibly valuable for both recon and precision strikes. It was built for true superiority, which means it has the range, maneuverability, and the weaponry to take to the skies and take out all opposition. It’s vast array of missiles also help!

1. GR5-Harrier Jump Jet
While all of these jets are incredible feats of engineering and power, did you know that there are many of these jets that you can actually buy? And one of the most unbelievable ones that you can get is the GR5-Harrier Jump Jet. This jet can get up to 731 miles per hour, and not just that, this isn't some defunct plane that someone decided not to use.
