So OK - take a look at the canopy on this thing! It's hard to imagine a machine with better visibility, no? I mean left, right, back over your head, you name it!

Compare: The machine on the left is a Suhkoi. Newer. Same engine, but stronger, lighter weight. They actually make an ejection seat for this baby! So if the pilot thinks she's bullet proof, will she push the machine closer to the edge? Hmmmm .... but also note the razor-back outline. Less visibility. Power is good. Visibility is better.
