MOSCOW, November 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The Gagarin aviation production plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur incorporated in the Sukhoi holding has put on a maiden flight the third trial model of a promising frontline 5th generation fighter, the Sukhoi press service reported on Tuesday.
Honoured pilot and Hero of Russia Sergei Bogdan piloted the fighter.
“The fighter spent a little more than an hour in the air and made a landing on the runway of the airfield at the plant. The flight was successful in full compliance with the flight mission.
