    • Recovering from what? They scrapped many planes due to avoid expenses and because of the end of the lifetime of many planes. Despite of that, they always built good planes in Russia. Nowadays they may be even more careful about quality, but russian planes were always good aircrafts.

      • No ayaa is correct many Soviet era designs where compromises to allow them to perform many roles this can be blamed on Soviet production policy as a result many aircraft where inferior to western designs in some areas range and fuel consumption being two very notable ones.Generally Soviet designed turbine and turbofan engines where very much inferior to western counterparts the Tu-95 used turboprops because effective turbofan engines where not available compare that to the B-47 and B-52 which already had great jet engines by and large Soviet turbofan engines lagged behind western designs.

        Sukhoi got advice from Boeing and Snecma(a French aviation company) for this project The Russians needed to learn how to design a more modern civil aircraft and the Superjet is the fruit of that lesson.

    • All planes look alike. Do you think AirBus would allow Russia to copy? The noise in press and TV would be very high. Russia is not China. Chine can copy-paste technologies and blackmails western companies, because those companies are too dependent of China. Russia is more open, soon it’s going to be the WTO member. There is now wat Russia would be allowed to copy anything. Besides, this plane is indeed the product of collaboration between Russia, Italy and France. Don’t be arrogant and ridiculous.

      • LOL, China has been a WTO member for 10 years now. What’s you’re point mentioning upcoming WTO membership for Russia? Membership doesn’t equal compliance. Actual compliance is hard won and takes a long time to come about.

        And it has nothing to do with the Superjet program. Sukhoi isn’t part of the problem, i’d say they’re one of the few in Russia doing it right. Using international partners and world class engineering and build quality that the international market for aircraft demands.

        • My bad, let me know how that WTO status is working out for you Russians after you join? Aren’t the Chinese as we speak churning out knockoff semi-copies of the SU-33 fighter jet after purchasing a sample through Ukraine and reverse engineering it? After Russia refuse to sell them a couple of the craft for fear of technology leakage?

          See what good a WTO complaint does when you gain membership…

  1. The Russian and CIS countries really need this plane. Looks like they certainly went about the correct way of modernizing their production.

    Always good to see people working.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  2. I am expecting more of it. The Sukhoi superjet project is very little in comparison to what it was 20 years ago. Russia needs major jets for intercontinental flights, perhaps, it needs to collaborate with Australia to get the newest economical supersonic engine to build entirely new supersonic civilian jet, perhaps, Russia needs the new rockets and space capsules, it’s a big work to revive the civilian applications of airspace industry. But this is a well and good promise it will be done.
