2 Sukhoi Super Jet inside A Huge Ruslan Cargo Plane

Sukhoi Super Jet inside A Huge Ruslan Cargo Plane

Posted on November 6, 2014 by tim

Superjet is a new passenger jet being manufactured by the Sukhoi company, the mothership of SU jets. Now it has reached the stage in the design of a passenger machine where yet more tests need to be done, and for those tests they brought it to Moscow. For some reason they decided to bring it inside another plane, one of the biggest cargo planes, an AN-124 Ruslan, rather than to fly it over by itself – which it can pretty much do already as over 45 of these planes have been shipped to customers around the world. But this particular model is a modified jet, so they decided to transport it by plane and that’s why we have the photos now to look at. Marina has travelled to this event and took the photos, thanks Marina, and let’s see what she has got!

This is an AN-124 Ruslan. With a Sukhoi 100 Superjet inside of it. 

And this photo was taken probably some 10 hours before – minutes before it departed from Komsomolsk-on-Amur – a Pacific coastal city where the SU factory is, all the way across Russia. It might be even more than a 10 hour flight, maybe a 12 hour flight. 

So here it is being unloaded.

Even airport technicians want to take a photo of a plane inside of another plane.
