Russian Knights Show off Chaff and Flares at Aero India 2013

The Russian Knights (Russkiye Vityazi) Air Acrobatics team of the Russian Air Force show off their skills with their Sukhoi Su-27s during the Aero India 2013 Air Show in Bangalore. The jets after flying in formation deployed Chaff and Flares, which are part of evasive countermeasures used to confuse enemy aircraft and deflect incoming missiles et al during air-to-air combat. They make spectacular scenes in the sky. One of the Sukhois can be seen to the top of the picture. (Sorry for the blemishes in the picture, the camera is quite old and has lens defects)
