Ukrainian Su-27s Construction/build nos

Post by TombsRIP » Thu Jul 20, 2017 9:45 am

The eagle- eyed amongst will have noticed that the last 5 digits of what is believed to be the Con No. is stencilled in small white numbers on the side of the ejection seat headbox (front cockpit only on
UB?) ie

58 blue "35612" Con. No. 36911035612

71 blue "24043" Con. No 96310424043.

I wonder how often the seats are changed between aircraft? This suggests not very often!

Above may be of interest to someone...

Cheers Martin G.

PS the pilot in rear cockpit was clutching a teddy bear whilst taxying out didnt make not a very operational shot ;-)

I have seen both Su-27P1M/Su-27UB1M and Su-27PM1/Su-27UBM1 quoted ... which is the correct type please.
