Although she didn't quite make to the edge, she did make a good effort.
Warning! Flat Earthers are encouraged NOT to watch this video! Curvature of Earth revealed.
Interesting shot of the Moon above the left aileron and the smoke trails are cool as well.
She cuts loose at the end for a while with some loops and rolls

Mig-29 in Red, White and Blue. Happy birthday USA!

The curvature of the earth you are seeing is mostly caused by the wide-angle lens. That's why this curvature is actually concave (instead of convex) when the horizon is below the optical axis.

Not to say that the earth has no curvature.

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic.

American pilot or could it be for the fact that the Russian flag is White, Blue and Red?

Cool video!
But most commercial jets fly at that altitude as well. Still the video is awesome. Thanks for posting

He would have barely reached the summit of Everest!

To be fair they are using a wide lense that will add curvature, as you can see it at takeoff.

And no I am not agreeing the Earth is flat, as that is just straight and utterly ridiculous to think...but he is right.

Everest is at 29K ft. According to the displayed altimeter in the video, he got up to 55K ft. Average airliner cruise altitude is 35 - 40K ft.

The MIG-29 has a service ceiling of 59K ft but can reach altitudes of 75K ft in one off, up and down "Edge of Space" type tourist flights.

We don't fly them in combat but there are a few that the Air Force flies in adversary training and a few privately owned de-militarized examples flying around.

Too bad the pilot didn't look up....he'd see a ancient SR-71 blowing by above him....

Or a U2 meandering around a mile or two above.
