Su-33 blast off From Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier in 360 Video

A stunning video, produced by RT video crew, offers you a unique opportunity to watch a Russian-made Sukhoi Su-33 multirole fighter take off from the biggest Russian aircraft carrier, Admiral Kuznetsov. This vessel is considered as the flagship of the Russian Navy. A video was shot using a panoramic wide-lens camera which provides 360-degree visibility for a truly immersive encounter.

The spherical footage shows a flight crew pulling a Su-33 to its launching site along the occupied deck. The video then displays another combat aircraft roaring past the camera onto the sky-jump ramp and taking off into the cloudy skies over the Mediterranean sea.

As we reported before, Admiral Kuznetsov is part of a Russian naval group deployed to the Syrian coast earlier this month. Russia’s sole aircraft carrier alongside the Pyotr Veliky battle cruiser, the Severomorsk and Admiral Kulakov anti-submarine destroyer and support vessels, was sent to the eastern Mediterranean sea to conduct military exercises and take part in the Russian-led counterterrorism operation in Syria.
