Production of Il-96-300 and AN-148.

From "Flying tank" to board №1. In the shops of the Voronezh aircraft factory several legendary aircrafts were produced for 85 years of its history. During the war - the famous Il-2 (the designers called it "Flying Tank"). At the end of 1960-s - the world's first supersonic passenger airliner Tu-144. Today the plant produces the aircraft IL-96, AN-148, as well as individual units for SSJ 100 and MS-21 aircraft. Work on transport aircraft IL-112 is
resumed. Voronezh Aircraft Manufacturing Company (VAMC) produces the main Russian aircraft - a presidential Il-96, better known as the board №1. The decision about the organization of the plant made in 1929. Before 1966, the plant had only numbered titles: firstly №18, then №64. During the war, production lines were evacuated to Kuibyshev (now - Samara), after the Victory factory in Voronezh was actually rebuilt.

Eric Sabo and His Famous Car Projects

A Russian artist Eric Sabo deserves the title "classic of Soviet design" for the creation of the minibus "Youth". Actually, Mr.Sabo is the author of dozens of projects, many of which were translated into serial production. In 1957,
