Correct, it is from a flight simulator game. In the CGI the MiG-29s are shown as single seat. The MiG-29s used in the MiG/Sukhoi flypast were two-seaters.

Single seat MiG-29


Two-seat MiG-29

That DID look interesting - for the 10-15 seconds I was able to scroll before the page was blocked by a demand to log-in

Yeah, no getting away from that unfortunately. I would suggest if you know anyone with insta to have them log in and look up fighter_bomber_ as the user.

Interesting to see CAP intercepts from their perspectives including a video of a Flanker variant slicing between a Typhoon and I think a Bear, as shot from the Bear, and lots of other photos from their sides of the intercept. One shows an F16 flying slow enough to have the landing gear down whilst flying formation with a May (I think...).

He obviously knows people in a few different communities as there's lots of Su-34, Su-27 family, Frogfoot, Mig-31, Hind, Fencer and Backfire footage/images.
