'04' was one of two Su-27s that caused much uproar back in 2001, when it was sent to Syria for display purposes. Seen by several eyewitnesses as wearing Syrian Air Force markings while in Syria, the appearance of this aircraft caused reports that Syria has indeed acquired a batch of Flankers. However, despite at least four such 'excursions' to Syrian airfields, the Russians were not successful in selling the Su-27 to that country. There are thus no Flankers in Syria, and this was a 'one off' aircraft, marked this way solely for display purposes.
