Can anyone help with an identification of these pilots? They are allegedly training in China on L-15s and were labelled as Colombian AF pilots ... but given the patch on the shoulder I'm not sure since Venezuela, Ecuador and also Colombia have very similar colours:

Definitively, they are Venezuelan pilots,

The pilot standing in the background (left); who is looking to his colleague´s cell phone, is sporting the Grupo-15 or 15th Special Ops Air Group Patch... This is the second unit that inducted the K-8W within the Venezuelan Air Force; the other unit operating the type is the Grupo-12 of 12th Fighter Group.

Regards.-

P.S.: [USER="959"]Deino[/USER], is there any possibility for sharing the link to the original video with us? TIA.-

Hi [USER="3789"]the_baphomet_00[/USER], thanks a lot for your post, your greetings and I wish You a Happy new year. Concerning your question I'm sorry, I only found these images and do not have the video :-( If there are some more news; I will let you know. Best

By the way, here a better image of the three Laotian AF Yak-130s

Myanmar will receive the JF-17B twin-seater at first

Guys, yesterday I was surprised, now - if true - I am ashamed. :apologetic:

Already yesterday one small comment noted, this aircraft no. 17-07 is not real, but in fact it would be a photoshop-fake, based on an image of the #03 prototype.
Now I just got note via a reliable source, this accusation is correct.

Seems as if someone made a perfect PS-job and I'm sure, he/she has some fun during the last hours.

MiGMan, the Azeri Su-25 also has a wavy flag on the fin- quite unusual!
