Spectacular photo of a missile launch from a Russian fighter jet's wing

Very cool high resolution shot of a missile launch from the wing of a Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker. According to Cenciotti at The Aviationist, it's an R-73, a "heat-seeking, short-range missile with a sensitive, cryogenic cooled seeker that can "see" targets up to 40° off the missile's centerline." » 2/24/15 11:45pm 2/24/15 11:45pm
