ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow region), August 19 (Itar-Tass) - A record high number of participants in the exhibition program is expected at MAKS 2013 air show, the director general of Air Show Company, Alexander Yelizarov, told Itar-Tass on Monday.
He said 44 countries would present show their production, which is four countries more than at the air show of 2011. All in all, representatives from more than 1,000 companies and organizations will take part in MAKS 2013, including 227 from foreign states. “Speaking about premiers, most of them will be presented in pavilions by Russian producers - there will be so many of them that it is impossible to mention all,” Yelizarov continued with a note of pride.
As for the demonstration flights program, it will also be very highly topical, first of all owing to Russia. “Of course, we cannot but mention the Superjet, as well as Su-35 and advanced frontline aircraft system PAK-FA T-50 fifth generation fighter - a future air complex for the front-line aviation,” he said.
Aerobatic teams Russkiye Vityazi (Russian Knights), Strizhi (Swifts), Sokoly Rossii (Falcons of Russia), Berkuty (Golden Eagles), Rus (Russia), Baltic Bees from Latvia as well as a team of Chinese Air Force will also demonstrate their skills. Pilots from France and Switzerland will arrive at Zhukovsky outside Moscow, as well as the biggest in the world passenger plane A-380 that already performed at the air show of 2011. “By the way, most likely the very same plane will fly here to once again show itself in the air,” the director general of the air show said.
MAKS 2013 will take place at Zhukovsky airfield from August 27 to September 1.
