A photograph of a former Ukrainian Air Force Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker displayed at the National Museum of the US Air Force (NMUSAF) has recently captured the imagination of aviation enthusiasts worldwide.

This picture is not just another image of an aging fighter; it’s a testament to the immense size and power of the Russian-origin Sukhoi Su-27 and Su-30, which stand as giants among their peers in the aviation world.

The photograph, released by the NMUSAF in Dayton, Ohio, offers a unique perspective on the colossal dimensions of the Su-27 series.

The photograph, which NMUSAF shared on October 25, clearly demonstrates how the Sukhoi Su-27 towers over other decommissioned aircraft, including both Soviet and American legacy models.
