Submission + - Russian SU-30 Jet Stops in Mid-Air without Stalls (air-attack.com)

zygote writes: From BoingBoing.net
"The fighter can stall from high speed, stopping in less than a second. Then it demonstrates an ability to descend tail first without causing a compressor stall. It can also recover from a flat spin in less than a minute."
