Why is there a parachute after landing? does it really help all that much in reducing speed.

also... in regards to the video in OP, is it possible to ever fly one of those things (or similar) without going through the inconvenience of becoming a fighter pilot??
like a Nurburgring for fighter jets!

Oh dear god yes. We used to have to be out on the runway to recover that chute. We'd wait around the 9000 foot mark of the runway, where the high speed turnoff was. When they popped that chute, they would stop before they reached the halfway point of the runway and have to taxi the rest of the way down to us. If they didn't use it, they'd roll to about 8,000 feet before stopping.

In the US, only if you can find someone that has a two seat version of one. If you can get to Russia they have several MiG-29 flights you can do. Anything from high G-high speed flights, to flights as high as the aircraft can climb and back down.

Now that's some stick control.

Is it evil that I couldn't stop laughing through both videos? Damn, that's funny. I'd hate to be in that situation though.

Yes it was. That other guy just couldn't stop laughing. I think that made the situation even funnier.

The circumstances behind this three part video aren't clear. It was shot in 2011, and pretty much speaks for itself.

Now that's some piloting skill to get that thing back on the ground in one piece.

Holy Oscillations batman! Also we will need some fresh flight suits for everyone onboard.

Probably never should have taken off in the first place. You can see it "whiffling" as soon as it's airborne, which looks like an aileron issue. That would explain the dutch rolls. But yeah, that was some serious skill to get it down in one piece.
