    An extravagant speed contest involving a MiG-29 fighter jet versus some racing cars was held during the MAKS 2017 international airshow.

    The Cars Versus Aircraft Speed Fest was held at the Zhukovsky Airfield during the MAKS 2017 international airshow.

    During this unusual contest, various high-speed racing cars attempted to outrun real aircraft.

    For example, during a heat that you can see on this video, a Formula 1 car raced against a MiG-29 fighter jet right on the runway.

    The 13th International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2017 kicked off on Tuesday, July 18, was held until Sunday, July 23, at the Zhukovsky Airfield near Moscow.
