During AeroIndia 2011, I got a chance to be on board Saab 2000 media flight. I had posted original video on another channel, but now I have uploaded it with some edits. Best part is that you will get to see major contenders of MMRCA like Eurofighter Typhoon, F-16 Block (50/60), Rafale, F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet and a glimpse of Gripen.


Video quality is not that great as I didn't record it on HD and without any stabilization.

Feel free to share your comments and suggestions.

Both engine exhaust look somewhat dissimilar, why?
Left engine is probably giving off more thrust than the right one in this instance, hence the nozzle is more extended or 'opened'. Both engines & their nozzles can be independently controlled,

Right engine is running at higher thrust than the left engine. Engine nozzles shrink with increasing thrust to maximize action and reaction. They expand largest when after burner is kicked or idling
