The final day of the MAKS International air show was to be marked by spectacular airborne displays of the world's finest aircraft and pilots. However, nonstop rain around Moscow caused a serious change of plan.
Deals signed during the international air show MAKS have surpassed the event’s previous record of $10 billion. The Sukhoi Superjet 100, a joint project between Russia and France, hits the best-seller list.
The T-50 is still being developed, so most of its technical specifications are top-secret. But visitors to the MAKS-2011 air show got truly unique chance to see the jet in flight when PAK FA’s first-ever public display took place.
State-of-the-art missiles for Russia’s first 5th generation fighter jet are undergoing final tests to ensure that when the T-50 is deployed in 2014 its advanced weaponry will be ready to make it invincible in the skies.
