MAKS 2011 throws open its doors to public
The show’s first 48 hours were devoted primarily to official delegations and corporate clients, with multibillion-dollar contracts being inked by civil and military manufacturers from Russia and across the world.
The weather has smiled on the show and the skies are clear. There is a great day out in store with plenty to interest all comers.
The line-up includes the latest Airbus A380 jumbo jet alongside Russia’s Sukhoi Superjet 100 medium-range passenger aircraft, and the TU-160 strategic bomber known as the White Swan.
Non-stop aerobatic stunts are being performed by teams from across the world, with Russia being represented by three teams: the Falcons, Knights and Swifts.
This year a particularly vast exhibition is devoted to military and civil helicopters, which are also performing demonstration flights.
