From nose-dives to vertical loops, all were featured in the military aviation display  

Pilots from Ukraine's Air Force successfully performed at the two-day international aviation display SIAF-2016 in the town of Sliac, Slovakia.

"This year, Ukraine was represented by the crews of two fighter airplanes SU-27 and SU-27UBM at static and dynamic displays and of military cargo airplane AN-26", the Defense Ministry's press release reads.

In particular, Colonel Oleksandr Oksanchenko, the pilot of the Ukrainian Air Forces, demonstrated a new show program. He added new elements to his aerobatic maneuvers, such as a 90-degree nose-dive, vertical loop, barrel rolls and inside hook turns.

Ukrainian ace pilots will have their next displays at international aviation shows in Czechia and Malta.
