How to Jib a Russian Fighter Jet

What with mini sponsoring the Burton Open Series, cars are now a pretty common sight in snowparks these days. But fighter jets? Not seen quite as often. Which is why this clip made us sit up and pay attention.

It features Russian rider Alexander Volkov and (yes we got pretty geeky here) a decommissioned MiG 23 fighter plane. Well at least we’re assuming it’s decommissioned. Though of course this being Russia there’s always a chance they just leave military hardware lying around in the woods to rust….

Makes for some pretty cool shots thought doesn’t it?
