The first private US operator of SU-27 aircraft is expected to be operational some time later this year. The parent company appears to be dedicated to providing service to military customers, so it doesn't seem as if the opportunity to fly one of Russia's finest is just a (very large) personal check away, but that's not completely clear. Ah, well. If nothing else it'll give those right wing "new world order did you know there are Soviet aircraft operating from US soil did you DID YOU DID YOU!?!?" nutballs something new to twirl about. I love it when they do that.
