The Russian aerobatic display team, Vyazma Rus, has amazed the crowd at the MAKS 2011, but the apparent ease with which the pilots perform their stunts takes plenty of hard work in training. The Vyazma Rus team, consisting of nine first-class pilots, has performed over 200 times in the past two decades. RT's Tom Barton received an opportunity to live out the "astonishing feelings" the pilots experience in their everyday work when he was allowed into the cockpit of a Vyazma Rus plane during training. "Absolutely amazing thrill, I can see why these pilots keep doing it and doing it again," he exclaimed an exhilarated Barton as he touched down.
