Russia’s Ministry of Defence has published a video on YouTube showing a pilot flying a Sukhoi Su-57 stealth fighter jet without the cockpit canopy.

The fight test with the plexiglass canopy removed was part of a mission to ensure the pilot could withstand exposure to the outside elements if the canopy were to become separated from the aircraft while it is in flight.

Presumably the pilot wore a special flight suit during the mission, which involved flying at high speeds and high altitudes; otherwise, it would not be possible to survive prolonged exposure in such conditions.

The defence ministry provided no additional details about the flight, which was conducted over the Chkalov Test Centre located at Akhtubinsk in the Astrakhan region.

It appears to have been a mission to test the effectiveness of the emergency procedures that would be followed should the aircraft get into trouble.
