Lucky he didn't create a compressor stall. Russians play by a whole different set of rules. Had that been an USAF F-15 and C-130, everyone would be grounded.

Not too much different than air to air refuel.

Wouldn't the exhaust from the cargo plane stall his engine?

Doesn't look too much different than the KC 135 tankers I flew on several times. Primarily the altitude of the aircraft as the plane receiving the fuel would be lower.

Absolutely turbulence could be an issue. I would guess there's an area just behind the plane that would be calmer due to slipstream. Similar to be very close behind a large transfer truck.

They gotta pick their days and if they're feeling lucky.

No even if he was directly behind an engine at that speed the turbulence mixes it up completely, might not smell too nice!

And Turbulence can cause an engine stall in certain aircraft, I'm lot a pilot but that is what I understand.

But in reality wouldn't that cause a stall???? leading edge of the wing and Canard on that thing would be close to 0 airspeed??

But yah ... that would impress me

Very impressive. Professionals doing a job. Absolutely beautiful video.
Little depth perception in any photo or video because they are monocular.

SU33... those are big, bad ass airplanes.

And yeah getting in the wake of that cargo plane could be a problem. It does look like the fighter has to increase his angle of attack when he gets in the wake of the plane (check out the canards).
