ZHUKOVSKY, Moscow region, August 25 (Itar-Tass) - World’s largest passenger jet, the A380 landed at the airdrome of the Mikhail Gromov Flight Research Institute in Zhukovsky near Moscow Sunday to take part in the MAKS’2013 international aerospace show.
Experts say the jet that arrived in Russia is not used by any commercial airline and is functioning strictly as a facility for training pilots and testing the prospective onboard systems and technology samples.
In addition, the airliner is taking part in the current program of trial testing other jets in the A380 family. It is one of the five experimental jets assigned by Airbus for the testing program, a spokesman for the corporation said.
The same jet took part in the previous MAKS show two years ago. It not only showed its performance characteristics in the air but was also accessible for visual examination on the floor for a static exhibition of aircraft.
MAKS’2013 will be held on the grounds of the Gromov Institute from August 27 through to September 1.
