Fair use rationale for Image:Strizhi logo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Strizhi logo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Russian Knights\Swifts[edit]

I notice that there's an image of the Knights and the Swifts flying in formation together. Where does it come from? (when was it taken?) Do they often fly\train together, or was it a one-off? There must be some sort of story behind the photo. Gurkha (talk) 20:26, 15 October 2008 (UTC)


Turkish stars[edit]

TURKISH STARS IS THE ONLY AEROBATIC TEAM IN THE WORLD WITH 8 SUPERSONIC AIRCRAFTS (NF5).

Turkish Stars is performing their air shows with 900 kms/h. If you watch some Turkish Stars air show, then you will feel that the others is LIKE SLOW MOTION.

Best tight formations and manuevres are presented by Turkish Stars till now.

The BEST AEROBATIC SHOW IN THE WORLD TILL NOW IS: Turkish Stars - (AirPower09 Zeltweg Austria 2009)

AirPower09 Day 1 F 53 Tiger Turkish Stars Part.2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_gWkKxFT24

After watching this video, you can see that the aerobatic teams of other countries CANNOT BE IN THE SAME CLASS WITH TURKISH STARS. There are GIANT DIFFERENCE

with TURKISH STARS and the OTHERS. —Preceding unsigned comment added by İlknur sevtapli (talkcontribs) 23:32, 11 August 2009 (UTC)


Do not be fool. Even an empty MiG-29 is almost so heavy as an fully loaded NF5 not to talk about more powerful craft like Su-27 that is used by Russian Knights. But nevertheless they fly with the same speed up to 900 km/h during their perfomances. 217.29.82.77 (talk) 07:57, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
